Try AWS DeepRacer Arcade on your mobile device

The AWS DeepRacer Arcade for mobile is a free, browser based car racing game that teaches you the fundamentals of machine learning. 

During a quick tutorial, you'll learn how AWS DeepRacer leverages reinforcement learning to navigate autonomously around the track. After, you'll get to use your mobile device to complete a lap around a real DeepRacer virtual track against one of our pre-trained machine learning models. Submit your time to the global leaderboard to see how you stack up; there is no credit card or log-in required to play the arcade.

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 to race on an AWS DeepRacer device and in the 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.
