City of Tuscaloosa & The University of Alabama-Culverhouse College of Commerce & Business Admin have developed a new patent-pending camera-based system to streamline the battle against deteriorating properties.

This system involves cameras mounted on city vehicles, primarily garbage collection trucks, to spot problems.

These images will, in turn, be fed into a computer model trained to spot blighted properties and nuisances.
