Welcome to the Haptics Laboratory at Kyung Hee University.

We do haptics! Haptics is the science and technology dealing with the sense of touch. Haptics covers diverse range of topics, including the understanding of human sensorimotor ability, mechanics and electronics principles required to build haptic interfaces, and computational algorithms for modeling and rendering haptic environments. We are pursuing research in most of these areas but more intensively focusing on

  1. Developing computationally accurate and efficient haptic modeling and rendering algorithms
  2. Designing usable haptic interfaces using smart materials and techniques
  3. Evaluating haptic systems based on psychophysics.

In addition to haptics, we are also interested in augmented/virtual reality applications, tangible user interface design, and their combination with haptics.

We aim at applying the above outcomes to various application areas including medical training/assisting system, sensorimotor skill transfer, virtual reality gaming and education


We are seeking new motivated graduate students. The position is open to master’s candidates who are willing to pursue Ph.D. program in the Haptics Laboratory and 2~4-year undergraduate students aiming to continue their studies as a master’s student after graduation. Interested students can contact Prof. Seokhee Jeon (jeon at khu dot ac dot kr) anytime.

햅틱스 연구실에서 새로운 학생들을 모집합니다. 석사과정을 하고 있고 햅틱스에 관심이 있어서 이 분야로 박사과정을 생각하고 있거나 2~4학년 학부생 중에 대학원 진학 혹은 햅틱스 연구에 관심있는 학생들은 전석희 교수(jeon at khu dot ac dot kr)에게 연락 바랍니다. 특히 한국 학생들은 다음 진학안내가 도움이 되길 바랍니다.
