Research and Development’s primary purpose is to drive forward the development of an idea through to the proof of concept stage, ready for the business to take forward into production. This is achieved through researching and exploring existing methods and applications or by identifying where new technologies could be used. Such solutions to prove a concept can then be implemented through the fast turnaround of building and testing prototypes. Research and Development are also responsible for the design and functionality of the electronics used in all of Gtech’s products. Part of this includes supporting other areas of the business with electronics knowledge and understanding.
