The ability to localize and identify multiple people is paramount to the inference of high-level activities for informed decision-making. In this paper, we describe the PEM-ID system, which uniquely identifies people tagged with accelerometer nodes in the video output of preinstalled infrastructure cameras. For this, we introduce a new distance measure between signals comprised of timestamps of gait landmarks, and utilize it to identify each tracked person from the video by pairing them with a
