Discover Financial Services applies machine learning through a Robocar event powered by Amazon SageMaker
The Discover Financial Services (DFS) team members who attended AWS re:Invent agreed that the Robocar Rally was an extremely impactful experience. By participating in this hackathon, six members of Discover’s core team received hands-on experience using machine learning (ML) and deep learning on AWS. They had a blast and created lasting memories! Discover’s Cloud Center […]
Congratulations to the Winners of the re:Invent Robocar Rally 2017!
To drive awareness of deep learning, machine learning, and the internet of things in autonomous driving, AWS hosted a hackathon—the Robocar Rally—at re:Invent in November 2017. We kicked off Robocar Rally in September with a series of blog posts and Twitch streams. At re:Invent, we had 100 attendees come for a hands-on two-day hackathon using deep learning and the open source Donkey Car platform with AWS machine learning services and AWS IoT. They formed teams, and built, customized, trained, and raced their own 1/16th scale cars. There’s a lot we could talk about, but we think this video shows the event better than we could write about it.
Building an Autonomous Vehicle, Part 4: Using Behavioral Cloning with Apache MXNet for Your Self-Driving Car
In the first blog post of our autonomous vehicle series, you built your Donkey vehicle and deployed your pilot server onto an Amazon EC2 instance. In the second blog post, you learned to drive the Donkey car, and the Donkey car learned to self-drive. In the third blog post, you learned about the process of streaming telemetry […]
Building an Autonomous Vehicle Part 3: Connecting Your Autonomous Vehicle
In the first blog post in our autonomous vehicle series, you built your Donkey vehicle and deployed your pilot server onto an Amazon EC2 instance. In the second blog, you learned to drive the Donkey car, and the Donkey car learned to drive itself. In this blog post, we’ll cover the process of streaming telemetry […]
Build an Autonomous Vehicle Part 2: Driving Your Vehicle
This is the second blog post in our series that teaches you how to build a 1/16th scale autonomous car. You can also tune in to our Twitch streams to review concepts discussed in these blogs. After following along with us, you can bring your own car to race at the re:Invent Robocar Rally 2017, […]
Build an Autonomous Vehicle on AWS and Race It at the re:Invent Robocar Rally
Autonomous vehicles are poised to take to our roads in massive numbers in the coming years. This has been made possible due to advances in deep learning and its application to autonomous driving. In this post, we take you through a tutorial that shows you how to build a remote control (RC) vehicle that uses […]
