AWS DeepRacer

Wondering how to get involved and race models on the AWS UndergroundDeepRacer Track?

AWS UndergroundDeepRacer is a place the AWS Community can race their models on a physical track.

We host all types of events from Community Races, Internal AWS events, to partner lead events. The track was donated by PTP (Pinnacle Technology Partners) and we are getting good use out of itโ—๏ธ

How can I watch?

How can I run a model on the track?

  • Request to join the AWS Machine Learning Community => UndergroundDR channel Slack Channel
  • DM Jon Myer or David Smith your model 1 day ahead of time

 

 

Race Rules:

  • 2-3 Minutes Per Racer
  • Models need to be received a day ahead of time through slack channel
  • Unlimited resets
  • Have Fun!

Default Racing Strategy unless specified by participant

  • 1st Minute of racing will be used to successfully perform a lap or consecutive laps
    • This will allow the person racing the model to get a feel for how well it performs
  • After the 1st minute the speed will be increased slowly in order to improve lap time
  • Last 30-40 seconds will be used to competitively achieve the best lap time possible
