Self-Driving Hotel Rooms

Ever wanted to go sightseeing without leaving your hotel room? The Autonomous Travel Suite, an idea by Toronto-based designer Steve Lee, could allow travelers to take a trip in a driverless hotel suite on wheels that fits up to five people. Each suite comes with built-in beds, a private bathroom with a toilet and sitting shower, a small kitchen and plenty of extra room for entertaining and spreading out, much like an RV or trailer except no one has to take driving duty. The battery-operated vehicle would be designed to travel up to 10 hours on single charge. Lee hopes to have the vehicles hit the road by 2030, but the technology is still being perfected. (Travel+Leisure, 11.29.18)
