Exploring the World of AI and Autonomous Driving with DeepRacer: A Student’s Journey

Edison International is awarding Nicole Lee and high school seniors like her to help them follow their dreams in science, technology, engineering or math (STEM) and empower them to change the world.

I want to Introduce an article written by my former student, Nicole Lee, whose commitment to learning during the pandemic is truly exceptional. Like many students around the world, Nicole was forced to learn from home as schools shut their doors. However, she did not let this setback hinder her passion for knowledge.

Building a DeepRacer Track

Building a DeepRacer track can be a fun and rewarding experience. Here are some things to consider before getting started:

  • Figure out the amount of space that you have.
  • Figure out how often you are going to race.
  • Figure out if you want to build a DeepRacer signature track (tracks in the console).
  • Consider building a custom track for your surroundings.

Building a signature DeepRacer track takes up the most space and in most cases, you will not be able to dedicate that amount of real estate to keep it up day in and day out. Building your own track personalized to your space is an efficient option and usually, you can have it up year-round.
