If your company has a tech product on the market or currently offers a service that is carried out manually, then investing in Research and Development could be crucial to ensure that you are able to stay a step ahead of your competitors and provide the best possible service to your clients.

If you offer services to your customers such as manual surveys, routine maintenance, or regular servicing of critical infrastructure or equipment then chances are that your competitors are researching how IoT and Machine Learning technologies can allow them to provide continuous monitoring, pre-empt faults and provide predictive maintenance. Investing in R&D to develop assistive technology for your business can help you allocate valuable resources more efficiently and offer better quality of service to your customers.

If you already produce a product, or depend on one to offer your services, then you should be thinking about how the next generation of that product can improve your business and help your customers.

Call us on 0118 327 2430 to talk it over.

Think Engineer can help you explore what is possible with the latest IoT and Machine Learning technologies and determine if they can improve your offerings and operations. We can be your R&D team, working with you to answer specific questions, or to continually improve your products and services. We’re happy to undertake all of your technical work, assist your in house engineering team, or work in a consortium of SME’s, universities and whoever it takes to keep your business ahead of the curve.




We will start by building a mutual understanding of your business / project and talk over some options before doing research.

At the end of this an initial proposal will be made.

Consultation is free!

System Design

We will carry out detailed research into the technologies which could be used, identify necessary subsystems and design all parts of the project and how they interact both with each other and existing systems.

A system design document will then be created.

Design Validation

We will endeaver to prove the concept and de-risk the system we have proposed with early stages of software design and hardware integration. The foundation for the rest of the development project is now in place.

Build It

Custom software, PCB design, creation and testing, data analysis and algorithm development, 3D design/ Printing, all as necessary depending on the scope of the project.

Integration and Testing

This is the interesting bit. Your idea comes to life, all our systems, hardware, software, etc come together and a working prototype is the result.

Rinse and Repeat

The process usually requires some in-project changes at this stage which will mean going over those last two steps again.

Project Finalisation

Now we hand over all technical know-how, data and designs to you. We can also assist on the technical side of handover, communicating with your technical departments, manufacturer or other 3rd party as required.
