In this paper an algorithm that represents shape sequences with moving frames parallel along the sequences are developed. According to Levi-Civita connection, it is not easy to measure the variation of the vector fields on non-Euclidean spaces without tools to parallel transport them. Thus, parallel transport of the vector fields along the shape sequences is implemented using the theories of principal frame bundle and analyzed via extensive simulation.
