Will the account be charged after the challenge expires if I don't unsubscribe?

No, the accounts expire automatically after 3 days. 

Are there any costs for the participants?


Will the route be announced in advance or only on the day?

We can announce the track now. It is the 2022 Summit Speedway 

How much time does the Challenge cost?

Consulting Answer: It depends. A simple model is trained in 60 minutes. If you are ambitious, you can work on it as much as you like. Realistic are 2-4 hours for good results. 

Is the Challenge part of the DeepRacer League?

Bad typo. Participants can submit their models directly to the DeepRacer League online. However, the on-site race will not be counted as an official event 

Do participants compete directly against each other? Can teams of two enter?

Teams will compete against each other. These can be individuals of course, but we have seen good results with teams of 2 and 3. 

How long does the workshop last?

60 minutes presentation, 30 minutes Q&A (optional). 

Will code be developed locally or in the cloud?

Code will be developed in the cloud. It is also possible to do it locally, there are two open source projects on github for that. Only the cloud-based development environments are officially supported at the event. However, those who develop locally are welcome to join the race. 

Who has the rights to the finished code?

The participant/developer
