Vendors such as Nine Stars Group have introduced products that use motion sensors to automatically open and close the lid, which is very convenient for consumers with special needs. Commercial spaces such as hotels, restaurants, and hospitals, where cross-contamination of germs is a common issue, will greatly benefit from the technology.
