The group was tasked with creating a hands-free flushing mechanism due to COVID-19. The group used an Arduino to create a program to detect when the toilet lid was closed and flush the toilet automatically. Our prototype requires the toilet lid to be closed before the flushing function can be activated. The working prototype uses a push button switch to let the Arduino know when the toilet lid is down. The group's prototype has room for improvement and is only applicable in certain types of household toilets.
