Abstract

Nowadays many people face dry problem, especially those who are often involved in activities in sweaty areas resulting in shoes being wet and damp. Besides, the uncertain weather conditions cause the shoes to be wet   As a result, the shoes are uncomfortable to use as well as cause skin diseases in the legs. Therefore, this project is to design and implemented a functional Automatic Shoe Dryer that can help people to speed up the drying process of shoes in short time and can be placed indoor of building, and thus avoid the shoe loss which is convenient for user. The product created is a combination of software and hardware programmed. This system is using Arduino UNO as microcontroller platform with temperature sensor DHT 11 to gauge the humidity inside of the Shoes. Arduino UNO will send command to relay to open AC hot bulb & fan to distribute the heat evenly. The System operates by calculating the shoes drying period with temperature over time
