Set Up Account Resources for AWS DeepRacer - AWS DeepRacer

Set Up Account Resources for AWS DeepRacer

To use AWS DeepRacer console and other AWS services, you need an AWS account. If you don't have an account, visit and choose Create an AWS Account. For detailed instructions, see Create and Activate an AWS Account.

As a best practice, you should also create an AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) user with administrator permissions and use that for all work that does not require root credentials. Create a password for console access, and access keys to use command line tools. For instructions, see Creating Your First IAM Admin User and Group in the IAM User Guide.

After you've created your AWS account, sign in to the AWS DeepRacer console, with your AWS account or user credentials. Then, follow the steps below to have the required AWS resources created.

To create the required resources for your account

  1. From the main navigation pane on the console, choose Get started with reinforcement learning.

  2. On the Get started with reinforcement learning page, under Step 0: Create account resources, choose Create resources.

You need to create account resources one time only. Later, you can choose Reset resources to sync up any resource updates.

You're now ready to configure an agent for training a AWS DeepRacer model. The topics in this section assume that you've signed into the AWS DeepRacer console.
