Imagining the travel experience 5+ years out with an IoT assisted prototype hotel room and its experience ecosystem. We integrated digital and physical touch-points connecting the room with the digital app and guest loyalty profile for an intuitive experience that improves throughout multiple stays.
The experience focused on four pillars:
Responsive environments (pattern recognition and AI)
Health and Wellness (sleep optimization, data utilization, smart fitness and nutrition)

Efficiencies (operational and resource)
The project started with 4 main sponsors above, later developed to include a total of 15 collaboration partners of all sizes.
