SubjuGator is an autonomous underwater vehicle designed and built by graduate and undergraduate students of the Machine Intelligence Lab (MIL). SubjuGator has competed six times in the Association for Unmanned Vehicles Systems International (AUVSI) underwater competition, placing in the top 3 four times.

MIL's goals are to develop basic research and technologies, enabling unprecedented capabilities for Micro Air Vehicles (MAVs) and small Unmanned Air Vehicles (UAVs). Potential missions we are contemplating are search and rescue, moving-target tracking, immediate bomb damage assessment, and identification and localization of interesting ground structures. Our work aims to allow such missions within very adverse environments, such as complex urban terrains, without substantial prior knowledge about these settings.
The Gator Microprocessor (GuP) is a central processing unit used for education
and research at the University of Florida. The processor is instruction set & machine code compatible
with the Motorola/Freescale 68xx microprocessors.
Koolio is a traveling autonomous refrigerator robot - featured on MSNBC's Countdown with Olbermann on April 21st, 2004. It is designed to autonomously deliver refreshments on demand (via the web). Unfortunately, it only works in the 3rd floor of Benton Hall at the University of Florida - which happens to be thesfloor houses the Machine Intelligence Lab.
Gnuman's new platform is being developed and is founded on a tripod which will allow the robot to travel in any direction with no explicit "front" or "back". Each wheel is independent of the others in both steering and drive which allows the robot to hypotrochoid (spin) as it moves.
