Research projects overview

D-MasterGuide develops digital learning stations for media competence development in the finishing trade. Tools for digital media use are integrated into master craftsman training and the added value of innovative technologies in the plastering trade is highlighted.

Via artificial intelligence, potential product defects can be detected, classified and avoided in the design process. The system supports achieving the optimal balance between design and quality based on economic facts.

Solutions are being developed on how to implement a climate-friendly, secure and efficient energy supply with high shares of fluctuating power generation from wind and solar energy. The project is creating a blueprint for efficient data and flexibility management that is to be transferable across Germany on a large scale.

The InKraFT project aims to improve inclusion in the automotive mechatronics apprenticeship program through the targeted use of digital media. Classroom instruction is supplemented by accessible learning content that is taught via an online platform and tailored to the needs of the learners.

PERFORM is a European training network that prepares the next generation of managers for digital retail. This network consists of various European universities, research institutes as well as retail companies and offers a structured and interdisciplinary PhD program.

Companies with effective project management work faster and more customer-oriented and thus have a clear competitive advantage. The service consulting approach empowers users to adapt PM methods to their specific project environment, either independently or in dialog with an expert system.


Data protection-compliant, visual tracking of the shopping behavior of customers in stationary retail. A stationary shopping experience with the advantages of individual product recommendations and active advice, analogous to the online store.


A real-time warning system that reacts in case of physically harmful stress for construction workers and craftsmen.

A web-based service platform links individual competencies that support the process from design to creation of wearables and can be flexibly combined. Our recommender system autonomously suggests a suitable selection of textiles and devices such as sensors and actuators for combination with the design idea.

The aim of the KAMeri project is to support employees who already work with robots – for example in assembly. Based on the EEG brain waves of the worker, the robot involved in the process can, for example, independently reduce its speed or issue recommendations for break times via smartwatches.

Robotic Process Automation (RPA) refers to software robots that perform tasks in exactly the same way as human clerks. Software robots offer a more mature, scalable and reliable implementation for repetitive processes and the employee is free for value-adding tasks.
