Donkey car is an open source DIY self driving platform for small scale cars. It uses a Raspberry Pi 3B (or 3B+) with a camera to control an RC car to drive thru tracks autonomously. Autonomous driving is achieved by recording images and your inputs while you're driving it, then it uses Tensorflow to learn from you. So you're teaching the car to drive like you!
The starter kit includes everything you need to get started. It includes:
HSP 94186 Brushed RC Car
An RC car fully tested with the Donkey Car platform
- 3D Printed Top Cage (in White or other color)
- Laser-cut Base Plate (in White or transparent)
Raspberry Pi 3B or 3B+ (Depends on availability)
The brain of the self driving RC car
Wide Angle Raspberry Pi Camera
The eye of the self driving RC car

We have added some enhancements to the Donkey Car platform to make this starter kit:
- Eliminated the external USB battery by adding a 5V Converter to power the Raspberry Pi with the RC car battery
- Modified the 3D printed base plate to whole the 5V Converter
- Loaded a stable version of the Donkey Car code onto the SD card so you could start as quickly as possible
