Virtual world developer and 3D learning firm Daden Ltd has created three new jobs at its Birmingham head office.
The new recruits, made possible by a recent investment, take the number of staff members to eight at Daden – a fourfold increase in the company's size over the last two years.
Daden is a software company specialising in creating immersive learning and visualisation environments.
Since basing itself at Birmingham Science Park Aston, Daden, has been involved in major innovations, including a multi-lingual chatbot, building the Virtual Library of Birmingham and developing a 3D Hurricane Shelter Simulation exercise for training emergency managers in New York.
The new additions to the Daden team will be involved in the development of a 3D data visualisation system.
Managing director David Burden said, "This is very positive news and just reward for the tremendous efforts of the Daden team in what has been an exciting but challenging year".
Daden recently signed an agreement with BAE Systems for the development of a 3D immersive visual analytics application, which will allow participants across the globe to get together to analyse and visualise shared data.
The system will enable users to combine diverse data sources in a format that makes sense to them. It will allow the user to look at the data from different perspectives in a 3D immersive environment, aiding retention and recall whilst supporting decision and sense-making.
The application, designed by Daden, will import historic or real-time information from different sources ranging from databases and web feeds, through social network and computer network data, to real-world sensors, GPS trackers and CCTV cameras.
The system will be developed at Daden's offices at Birmingham Science Park Aston.
