SARA: Sense-Analyze-Respond-Actuate

Our article describing the SARA paradigm was published on the cover of MDPI Actuators in January 2021  (Volume 10, Issue 1). The SARA paradigm is a new concept in actuating at the material scale (in this case polymer nanobrushes) and the operational scale (lettuce hydroponic system), all using a smartphone.
