The Haptics Lab is Room 144 in the Towne Building on the Penn campus. The phone number in the lab is (215) 573-6748.

The easiest way to find the lab is to enter the Towne Building from the first floor of the Skirkanich Building. There you will see a large lime-green image of gears; proceed down the short flight of stairs to find Towne 144 on your left.

Another good way to find the lab is to start in the Cybercafe at the ground-floor junction of the Levine and Towne buildings. Go through the double doors next to the MEAM machine shop, and continue straight down the hallway until you see Towne 144 on the right.

Alternatively, here is a video describing how to get to the Haptics Lab.

Starting in January 2017, Professor Kuchenbecker is taking a leave of absence from Penn to become a Director at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Stuttgart, Germany. There she is establishing the new Haptic Intelligence Department, which will pursue research that is similar to her group's work at Penn. This move will be permanent, so all activities of the Penn Haptics Group will wind down and/or transfer to her new lab in Germany. Consequently, the Penn Haptics Group is not accepting any new students.
