Young Nigerians are stepping up the ante of their innovative prowess in various areas including technology. Charting this course, is a young Nigerian student identified as Nicholas Kajoh who built a video-based vehicle counting system for his bachelor’s degree final year project.

Sharing his work on Twitter via the handle @nicholaskajo, the software engineer revealed that he was able to build the video-based vehicle counting system with the use of Python Programming Language.

Nicholas posted a video of the system in operation with the following message:

“1/2 I worked on a video-based vehicle counting system for my final year (BSc) project. It gave me the opportunity to finally dive into Computer Vision. It was built using OpenCV (Python) and a pre-trained YOLO v3 object detection model. Accuracy is not that bad IMO.”

With a growing technology industry, developments such as this go a long way in showing the potentials of young Nigerians, and how far they can go with the right support and infrastructures. On his Twitter bio, Nicholas identifies himself as a Consultant, Software Engineer and Author of the Alpha Coder Blog.
