Jonathon Lloyd wins ActionPoint prize
Congratulations to Jonathon Lloyd for winning first prize in the ActionPoint Annual Final Year Project.
His project, a vehicle licence plate recognition system, impressed the award judges with its ‘clean architecture and functionality’.
The award was presented during this year’s FYP Demo Day Exhibition on Thursday 5th April.
Jonathon won a €750 cash prize for his effort, which was also praised for the efficiency it demonstrated over existing technology.
Second prize was awarded to Kevin O’Brien for his project, a horse racing predictor system.
John Savage, ActionPoint co-founder said “We have very close ties to the university, as graduates ourselves, and of course, we are located on campus, only a stone’s throw away from the campus. Over the past decade we’ve grown to almost 100 employees, many of whom are UL graduates. “We’re very happy to help engage and support engineers of the future through our final year project competition,” he said.
Congratulations to Jonathon and Kevin, and indeed to all the Final Year students who presented at this year’s demo day.
