Pro Lab provides biometric measurement capabilities through the integration of a wearable galvanic skin response (GSR) sensor – the Shimmer3 GSR+ Unit. This integration enables simultaneous recording and automatic synchronization of GSR and eye tracking data. The integration is available for Screen type projects.
In order to use a Shimmer3 GSR+ device in Pro Lab, the computer running Pro Lab needs to be equipped with a Bluetooth Adapter to allow the streaming of GSR data over Bluetooth. An external Bluetooth Adapter is recommended.
To set up a Shimmer3 GSR+ device in Pro Lab, the unit needs to be paired to the computer running Pro Lab first. This is a one-time configuration.
Note that the following pairing instructions are based on Windows 10. Go to Windows support to learn how to pair Bluetooth devices with Windows 7 or 8.1.
Once your Shimmer3 GSR+ device has been paired with your computer, Pro Lab will automatically connect to it every time you configure Pro Lab to record GSR data with Shimmer 3 GSR+.
