AWS DeepRacer League
Welcome to the world’s first global autonomous racing league, driven by machine learning. It’s time to race for prizes and glory, and a chance to advance to the AWS DeepRacer Championship. Get on the track to compete online in monthly races worldwide while improving your machine learning development skills!
Now Open: April Qualifier races
Format: head-to-head | Laps: 3 continuous | Penalties: 5 seconds
Lars Circuit is a pro difficulty track (59.233m) that adds an increasing to decreasing double apex and multiple high speed straightaways to its shorter cohort Lars Loop. It is named in honor of 2020 AWS DeepRacer League silver medalist Lars Lorentz Ludvigsen (Duckworth).
Top developers from last month's open division compete in the inaugural pro race in a head-to-head format. To climb the leaderboard, the fastest developers will lay down their fastest time in a 3 lap attempt, while avoiding 5 second penalties for collisions with bot cars and veering offtrack. At the end of the month, the top 16 racers will advance to the Pro Finale, to race LIVE for prizes and glory. more details »
Format: time-trial | Laps: 3 continuous | Penalties: 5 seconds
Lars Loop is a short track (41.55m) comprised of a modified oval with increasing radius and double apex, a varying double chicane, and a broad hairpin final stretch. It is named in honor of 2020 AWS DeepRacer League silver medalist Lars Lorentz Ludvigsen (Duckworth).
Participants in the Open Division compete in time trial format, climbing the leaderboard by completing 3 laps around the track the fastest while avoiding time penalties for going offtrack. Participants in the top 10% will advance to the Pro Division, receiving a pro welcome kit complete with exclusive AWS DeepRacer gear! Get started for free with AWS Free Tier »
Tune in for the LIVE Pro Finale
At the end of each month the top 16 racers on the Pro leaderboard advance to compete in the Pro Finale. There, developers will submit their models to race LIVE in the AWS DeepRacer console.
For April, the Pro Finale will consist of an object avoidance race taking place on the Lars Circuit. Each developer will have two attempts to achieve the fastest single lap time. When the dust has settled, the top 10 developers on the Finale leaderboard receive AWS DeepRacer Evo devices, while the Top 3 have the chance to earn an expenses paid trip to compete in the AWS DeepRacer League Championships at AWS re:Invent.
Win prizes and glory
New for 2021
the AWS DeepRacer League has over 5x more chances to win prizes than ever before. Developers can participate each month to earn unique rewards and move up the ranks to unlock physical prizes and experiences!
Earn new digital rewards such as custom shells, liveries, and mods by competing in the league each month. Racers can access earned rewards in "your garage" inside the AWS DeepRacer console. Build up your inventory to tune each model's custom look for racing in the virtual league!
Move up the ranks in the Open Division for a chance to become a certified pro. Land in the top 10% at the end of any Open Division race and you'll advance the following month, earning an AWS DeepRacer Pro welcome kit with exclusive DeepRacer merchandise shipped right to your door!
The top 3 racers in each Pro Finale will qualify for the AWS DeepRacer League Championship Cup. They'll earn an expenses paid trip to AWS re:Invent 2021 to compete for the title and the grand prize. Start racing today and it could be you on top of the podium this year!
The FASTEST way to learn Machine Learning, literally.
AWS DeepRacer League brings developers from all over the world together through Machine Learning (ML) competition. With hands-on training, participants learn to build reinforcement learning (RL) models using the AWS DeepRacer device and 3D virtual racing simulator. Whether you're a seasoned pro at the top of the global leaderboard or developing a model for the first time, AWS DeepRacer is the fastest way to get rolling with ML. Explore the educational resources below to kickstart your ML journey, then get hands on in console to take to the track.
