Gizmo the Robot is a small development robot I intend to use for various personal projects. It originally started out as a new version of Roly the Robot (Gizmo's older brother), but was completed as a project submission for UF's Intelligent Machine Design Lab. It was programmed to sort colored cans that it encounters while following a line.
