Just does donkeycar work?

Hi, i am a student who got a assignment on machine learning and figured that using a doneky car would be fun. But i am wondering how does the donkey car work, what kind of machine learning does it use unsupervised, supervised or something else. How does the car process the data (through a neuarlnetwork?). What kind of diffrent datapoints does it gather?
Thankful for answers!
