Donkey Cars – Tech Talk and Workshop, INSERT DATE

If you are into machine learning and racing cars, this event is for you! Join us XXXX, when Trifork is in the house to give you an intro to the extremely cool Donkey Cars – a small-scale remote-controlled car mounted with a RaspberryPis, sensors and cameras.

During the hands-on workshop part of the program, you will be guided through how to set up the Donkey Car, how to install pre-recorded data, how to train and tweak machine learning models and deploy them on the car. When you have attended this event, you will be fully ready to enter the Donkey Car Race Event (the date has yet to be announced).


Donkey is an opensource DIY platform for small scale cars with a high-level self-driving library written in Python. A Donkey Car consists of standalone, independently configurable components that can be combined to make a car. Read more about Donkey Cars.
