How to Find Us

Main content

We are part of the Institute of Robotics and Intelligent Systems within the Department of Health Science and Technolgy (D-HEST) at ETH Zurich and affiliated to the Spinal Cord Injury Center at Balgrist University Hospital, performing research on sensory-motor systems.

SMS Lab at ETH Zentrum

We are located in the buildings TAN and ML, which are both north of the ETH main building (marked with HG on the map below). From Central you can take the Polybahn uphill, which ends just opposite of the TAN building. To find our lab in the ML building, enter through the side entrance on Clausiusstrasse about 40 meters north of the corner of the building (entrance "B", see map below), and go to the F floor.
