Guy’s submission was the ‘Design and Build Chess Playing Robot’. The automated robot considers complex chess moves as it plays, impressing the judges and earning Guy the £1,000 prize money.
Dr Mark Aston, the Chief Technical Officer at L.B. Foster said: “It demonstrates a clarity of thought as well as recognition of the potential commercial opportunities.”
Guy beat three other finalists including Loughborough alumni Leah Edwards and Mathus Thongkerd.
On winning he said: “I'm very proud of what I have achieved, and it was great to have been recognised for my hard work. I hope this award will lead to some great career opportunities in engineering.”
