Training a pre-trained neural network for a donkey car with Google’s Colab cloud service

In this video a Colab notebook is presented which allows you to:

  • Set up a donkey car project
  • Upload own trainings data or trainings data from GitHub
  • Train a neural network to drive the donkey car autonomously with GPU support for free in the cloud
  • Create a movie to with salient visualization on which parts of the image the algorithm focusses to

You can access the Colab notebook via a FastPages blog at https://uwesterr.github.io/MlFastAiBlog/donkeycar/colab/2020/03/01/TrainDonkeyCar.html
The work was inspired by Jonathan Tse’s Colab Colab notebook https://colab.research.google.com/github/robocarstore/donkey-car-training-on-google-colab/blob/master/Donkey_Car_Training_using_Google_Colab.ipynb
