The Autonomous Travel Suite is designed to help those who are tired waiting for their taxi or ride-shares to pick them up from the airport. Created by architect Steve Lee out of the LA Aprilli Design Studio, this suite will use solar powered car that could change the way everyone travels. Lee created the suite to give customers a door-to-door autonomous service that contains a work space, a kitchen, and a mini bar.
Recently chosen as a finalist in the Radical Innovation Awards, the self-driving hotel suite would be part of an Autonomous Hotel Chain. Conceptualized as a personal rental car and hotel room, the self-driving cars are meant to be an extension of what Lee calls a “parent suite,” offering all of the comforts of a luxury suite while on the road.
When not in use, the solar-powered cars would charge in a docking facility at the main hotel, of which the mobile unit would serve as an extension. Guests would be able to choose between different room types and sizes at different prices, and they could order custom features, such as a televisions or extra beds.
The futuristic design was created with the busy traveler in mind, offering a driverless, door-to-door car service that would allow guests to work or rest while on the go. The car interiors would include a foam mattress, a wash room and a working space, along with ample storage for luggage. In addition to the comfy living area, the suites would be built with smart glass, which can be dimmed for privacy.
