AWS DeepRacer

Autonomous 1/18th scale race car driven by reinforcement learning, 3D racing simulator, and global racing league.

  • AWS DeepRacer is the fastest way for developers to get rolling with machine learning, literally. Get hands-on with a fully autonomous 1/18th scale race car driven by reinforcement learning, 3D racing simulator, and a global racing league.
  • Car – AWS DeepRacer is an autonomous 1/18th scale race car designed to test reinforcement learning (RL) models by racing on a physical track.
  • Simulator – Build models in Amazon SageMaker and train, test, and iterate quickly and easily on the track in the AWS DeepRacer console and 3D racing simulator.
  • League – Compete in the world’s first global, autonomous racing league, to race for prizes and glory and a chance to advance to the AWS DeepRacer Grand Final to win the coveted AWS DeepRacer Cup.
  • Build RL Models: You can build your own RL model for AWS DeepRacer using the AWS DeepRacer 3D racing simulator. Building a model requires basic Python programming skills.

Why did we get one? To see what makes sense, or not, for an Adafruit version using BLINKA / CircuitPython. MEEP MEEP.


We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
