Eyetracker Output Utility Walter van Heuven at the University of Nottingham, UK. Eyetracker Output Utility can be used to visualize eye tracking data, create QuickTime movies, convert data files to ILAB, and calculate the number of fixations and total fixation durations in regions of interest within user-defined time windows.
Fixation Detector Oleg Špakov at the University of Tampere in Tampere, Finland. Fixation Detector is a tool to detect fixations from raw gaze data (samples). The only gaze data values needed are the gaze X-Y coordinates and sample's timestamps. It was developed as a collection of fixation detecting algorithms. Currently, it supports 3 such algorithms: 'fixation size', 'speed' and 'dispersion'.
Pupil measuring scripts Sylvain Sirois and Iain Jackson at the University of Manchester, UK. Matlab scripts for measuring pupil size. Any use of these scripts must recognize and cite the source (Jackson & Sirois, 2009).
VizFix VizFix is developed at the University of Oregon Cognitive Modeling and Eye Tracking Laboratory. VizFix is a research tool for visualizing gaze fixations and other data from eye tracking experiments. VizFix can replay an experimental session with real-time eye movement data superimposed on the display. It can also provide a summary visualization for the data within a period of time. VizFix provides facilities for defining regions of interests and collecting a range of statistics from eye movement data.

PsyScope Multiple developers. See for more information. PsyScope is a program for designing and running psychological experiments. The current version connects to an eye tracker by using Tobii Clearview or Tobii Studio. The next version will be able to connect directly to a Tobii Eye Tracker using T2T.
SMART-T (System for Monitoring Anticipations in Real Time with the Tobii) Developed at the Rochester Babylab at the University of Rochester. SMART-T is a Matlab-based, GUI-driven suite for designing and running anticipatory and other eye tracking experiments on Mac OS X. Uses Talk2Tobii. Future releases will use T2T (PsyScope group).
T2T Luca Filippin T2T is a package which provides Tobii Eye Trackers communication support while using Mac OS X and Linux. It's based on Talk2Tobii. Although Talk2Tobii has been developed as Matlab Toolbox, T2T is completely independent from Matlab. T2T also brings Talk2Tobii to Linux platforms as Matlab and Octave Toolbox. T2T permits any C/C++/Python/Perl application to interface with the TET server.
