Tobii Pro Glasses 2 API

Free application programming interface for the creation of wearable eye tracking solutions to work with Tobii Pro Glasses 2. Access to data streamed live from the glasses as well as stored data for post-recording analytics. This API is platform and language independent.


Toolkit for the development of wearable analysis applications 

The Tobii Pro Glasses 2 API (application programming interface) allow developers to take full advantage of the wearable eye tracker by creating amazing applications customized to different types of research. It comes with a developer's guide and code samples.

This API is platform and language independent and supports only Pro Glasses 2.

Download is free of charge.

"Eye tracking with the wearable Tobii Pro Glasses 2 adds a new dimension to our prosthetics control and user-interface work. The new API with data streaming will enable users to direct our robotic prosthetic devices in real time through both tracked gaze location within the local environment and the navigation of interactive augmented reality-control menus."

Brock Wester, Ph.D. and Applied Neuroscience Section Supervisor at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory

One API—many different uses

Pro Glasses 2 API consists an HTTP REST to control our wearable eye tracker in live setups, as well as comprehensive documentation of the internal file formats in order to read the recorded data from the glasses for post-analysis applications.

The HTTP REST API offers full access and control of Pro Glasses 2 in live scenarios. It enables you to calibrate, start and stop recording sessions, and get a live data stream of imagery from the scene camera video and gaze data. Live feedback and user-monitoring applications are just two examples of solutions that are possible using HTTP REST API.

Researchers who need to import the eye tracking data for analysis can use Pro Glasses 2 recording data directly from the SD card in the Recording Unit. Pro Glasses 2 API makes this process easy by providing full documentation of files and file structure on the SD card.

"We see exciting new applications for Tobii Pro Glasses 2 and its new API. They provide a new platform for quantifying visual orienting response behavior in real-world scenes."

Dr. Johan Pel, Department of Neuroscience, Erasmus MC
