Developers, start your engines

Developers of all skill levels can get hands on with machine learning through a cloud based 3D racing simulator, fully autonomous 1/18th scale race car driven by reinforcement learning, and global racing league.


In pole position to learn reinforcement learning

AWS DeepRacer gives you an interesting and fun way to get started with reinforcement learning (RL). RL is an advanced machine learning (ML) technique that takes a very different approach to training models than other machine learning methods. Its super power is that it learns very complex behaviors without requiring any labeled training data, and can make short term decisions while optimizing for a longer term goal.

Get rolling with machine learning

A fun way to learn machine learning

Get started with machine learning quickly with hands-on tutorials that help you learn the basics of machine learning, start training reinforcement learning models and test them in an exciting, autonomous car racing experience.

Experiment and grow

Test these new found skills in either a single-car time-trial format or dual-car head-to-head racing in the AWS DeepRacer 3D racing simulator.  Experiment with multiple sensor inputs, the latest reinforcement learning algorithms, neural network configurations and simulation to-real domain transfer methods.

Community and competition

The AWS DeepRacer League provides an opportunity for you to compete for prizes and meet fellow machine learning enthusiasts, online and in person. Share ideas and insights on how to succeed and create your own private virtual race.


The rubber meets the road

AWS DeepRacer is an autonomous 1/18th scale race car designed to test RL models by racing on a physical track. Using cameras to view the track and a reinforcement model to control throttle and steering, the car shows how a model trained in a simulated environment can be transferred to the real-world.

Introducing the AWS DeepRacer Evo

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. In object avoidance races, developers use the sensors to detect and avoid obstacles placed on the track. In head-to-head, developers race against another DeepRacer on the same track and try to avoid it while still turning in the best lap time. Forward facing left and right cameras make up the stereo cameras, which helps the car learn depth information in images. This information can then be used to sense and avoid objects being approached on the track. The LiDAR sensor is backward facing and detects objects behind and beside the car.
