With DATA▪e▪Pump, a technology transfer is taking place in primarily medium-sized enterprises within the Nuremberg metropolitan region. The target groups are operators, automation technicians, system integrators, pump and system manufacturers, but also service providers, such as municipal water suppliers, which will be able to maintain their prices at current levels in spite of increasing costs thanks to improved pump systems.

DATA▪e▪Pump is a project conducted by the automation technology research group at the Nuremberg Campus of Technology in collaboration with the ELSYS Institute.

DATA▪e▪Pump is being funded by the EU within the scope of the ERDF.


The AdhocMRK project is a two-year project funded by the Kompetenzzentrum Mittelstand [Medium-sized enterprises competence centre] (KME). The aim is to develop a flexible robot system which can be used on an ad hoc basis and integrated into an existing, partially automated production or manufacturing line at any given point without major preparation measures. The necessary setup is to be performed by an adjuster without in-depth programming knowledge and without an individual security certification.

KORO: Automated programming of cooperative industrial robots (initial project)

The fields of application of industrial robots are becoming increasingly complex. Among other things, applications with several robots working together in a cooperative manner are becoming increasingly common. However, the equally increasing complexity of the programming is problematic. Within the research project “Automated programming of cooperative industrial robots”, a programming environment is being developed in which such applications can be automatically programmed on the basis of simple graphical inputs.

Libra3D: Determining patient weight in the emergency department using optical sensors

In an emergency, every second counts: In the emergency department, doctors administer medication adapted to the patient’s weight to counteract consequential damage from heart attacks and cerebral infarctions. In cooperation with the neurological head clinic of the University of Erlangen and Siemens Healthcare, the Libra3D project has set itself the task of supporting doctors in determining weight by means of a camera system.
