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.

AWS DeepRacer Car

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.

Already own an AWS DeepRacer?

Developers who already own a DeepRacer can upgrade their cars to have the same capabilities as Evo with the AWS DeepRacer Sensor Kit.

Under the hood

The AWS DeepRacer Evo car includes the original AWS DeepRacer car, an additional 4 megapixel camera module that forms stereo vision with the original one, a scanning LiDAR, a shell that can fit both the stereo camera and LiDAR, and a few accessories and easy-to-use tools for a quick installation.
