How Does The Dreamiest Traveling Experience Feel Like In The Near Future?

To fulfill the basic human needs to sleep, move and work, what can we offer in the future?

Nowadays, 40-60 percent of workers in North America are in non-traditional shift work. Due to stress, travel and other temporary interruptions, more and more people are affected by sleep-related problems.

In oder to increase the number of Americans that are regularly getting a good night's sleep, the project objective is to develop a proposal for new business opportunities in products and services, which create future desirable experiences through out implementing technologies based on future trends.

This project was developed in 2016. Time frame was 4 weeks.

Light, noise, sitting posture, privacy matter.

Sleep is the most frequent activity in transit. It accounts for 60% out of all types of behaviors during trips. That’s why travelers strive for more comfortable sleep-related experiences. 80% of passengers want better seats and 64% of them want enough spaces.

We started with a simple question:
What if one arrives rested, ahead of the destination?
Sleep shouldn’t be disturbed.
Sleep to Go optimizes resting and sleeping moments by changing the way people travel through on demand private services with autonomous cars.
Sleep to Go Value proposition
Get Rest before Destination
"Do not Disturb" Environment
On Demand
Autonomous Cars
Enhanced Sleeping Experience
Anywhere in LA and SF
Sleep to Go offers services on demand basis anywhere in these two area. The eight hours journey has drained travelers's energy before their wonderful time to the destination. Even though a few believe that the duration of air planes would relieve this difficulty, many passengers still suffer from the crowded environment as well as the accessibility to the air port. That's how we see an opportunity for business that helps improve resting experience in transit.

Business Plan
Sleep to Go is a new type of service.
Therefore, We had to retrieve the market pricing from other existing competitors. How to monetize the values of experiences in a service product?
We could pull out the costs of values, based on market price including hidden costs and try to see how our service can be priced.
Sleep to Go offers a higher premium service than other existing businesses. Taking account for hidden costs, the price of first class airplane, which is one of comparable competitors in the service level, is $243. However, it doesn’t offer what we can do in our service.
Sleep to Go will be launched in 2020 with the flat rate at $250.

If we conservatively project the occupancy rate as 33% daily in the initial rollout with 40 cars, our annual revenue will be $3.65M.
In 10% APR under the 5 years payback period, the early investment for the product development will be $1M in 2017.​

For second investment that we need will be $1.85M in 2020 when Sleep to Go will be launched.
