Today, we are excited to announce the AWS DeepRacer League’s 2020 season is nearing the final lap with the Championship at AWS re:Invent 2020. From November 10 through December 15, there are three ways to join in the racing fun: learn how to develop a competitive reinforcement learning model through our sessions, enter and compete in the racing action for a chance to win prizes, and watch to cheer on other developers as they race for the cup. More than 100 racers have already qualified for the Championship Cup, but there is still time to compete. Log in today to qualify for a chance to win the Championship Cup by entering the Wildcard round, offering the top 5 racers spots in the Knockout Rounds.
Starting December 1, it’s time for the Knockout Rounds to start – and for racers to compete all the way to the checkered flag and the Championship Cup. The Grand Prize winner will receive a choice of either 10,000 USD AWS promotional credits and a chance to win an expenses-paid trip to an F1 Grand Prix in the upcoming 2021 season or a Coursera online Machine Learning degree scholarship with a maximum value of up to 20,000 USD. See our AWS DeepRacer 2020 Championships Official Rules for more details and check out our blog to get a round-by-round breakdown on the Championship structure.
AWS DeepRacer, AWS DeepRacer Evo, and Sensor Kit are now available for shipping outside the United States for purchase on Amazon.com. AWS DeepRacer is the fastest way to get rolling with reinforcement learning (RL), with a fully autonomous 1/18th scale race car driven by reinforcement learning. AWS DeepRacer Evo is the next generation in autonomous racing. It comes fully equipped with stereo cameras and LiDAR sensor to enable object avoidance and head-to-head racing, giving developers everything they need to take their racing to the next level.
