Nowadays, most people spend less time at home. Thus, an automatic cloth drying system is convenient for our daily routine. In this project, a cloth drying system, that can retrieve-in hanging clothes automatically when it is raining and then, retrieve-out out again when the sun is shining, is developed. The system is controlled by an Arduino UNO and applied two sensors, a rain sensor and an LDR to detect rain and sunlight, respectively. The project involved a conversion of electrical power into mechanical power for the movement of the retractable cloth drying system using a power window motor. This system can withstand until 5 kg of wet clothes.
