Synchronizing eye tracking data with other biometric data
Biometrics Software Suite makes it possible to synchronize eye tracking data from Tobii Pro eye trackers with a wide range of biometric sensors, such as EEG, ECG, EMG, GSR and NIRS.
A modular approach that utilizes specific import profiles combined with automatic synchronization algorithms, helps merge data from these different instruments with eye tracking-specific content like pupil width, and vision-triggered events such as saccades, fixations, and area-of-interest-dependent events.
Pairing Biometric Software Suite with Tobii Pro Studio, researchers can leverage the strength of Tobii Pro Studio to analyze the eye tracking data. No additional stimulus presentation PC necessary.
Pro Studio allows replay of any recording. A red dot overlays the stimuli marking the exact position of the respondant's eye at any given time. The Biometric Software Suite enables the simultaneous visualization of synchronized biometric data with the eye tracking replay in Pro Studio.
In this picture, you can see a Biometric Software Suite screenshot of a NIRS recording. The NIRS hardware was Artinis PortaLite mobile NIRS system, recorded and synchronized with the Oxysoft recording software and the Biometric Software Suite.
This screenshot shows eye tracking data that was recorded in Pro Studio as it appears in the Biometric Software Suite.
Biometric Software Suite enables you to combine eye tracking data with the following biometric data:
Biometric Software Suite works with a wide range of systems and formats for biometric data:
Biometric Software Suite allows you to:
Tobii constantly increases the number of compatible options. Please contact us if you want to synchronize any devices not mentioned above.
The export function allows you to export datasets from the Biometric Software Suite in various formats. You can then analyze the datasets with SPSS, MATLAB or other software tools.
The Biometric Software Suite also makes it easy to export datasets as videos. Re-import the exported video into Tobii Pro Studio in order to verify the quality of the data in conjunction with an eye tracking experiment.

Video Export Add-on
Video Export Add-on enables plots to be exported as videos, replacing the user camera file in Tobii Pro Studio. Plots can then be visually inspected in Tobii Pro Studio based on the same timeline as the eye tracking results. This add-on is compatible with both BSS Basic and BSS Professional version.
Workload RT-Bridge Add-on
Workload RT-Bridge Add-on is compatible with both BSS Basic and BSS Professional version. Usage requires a working license for Workload RT from EyeTracking Inc.
Close partnerships and integration with third-party products such as Biometric Software Suite (Dr Hornecker), E-Prime (PST) and StimTracker (Cedrus) make Tobii Pro eye trackers compatible with a large variety of biometric sensors.
