Pro Lab is the eye tracking software designed for conducting experimental research with Tobii Pro hardware. The flexible platform guides and supports the researcher through the entire research workflow, from simple to complex experiments.
Tobii Pro Lab constitutes – together with Tobii Pro hardware – a complete solution for researching human behavior.
It provides a visual user interface and dedicated software features that efficiently guide and support the researcher through all phases of an eye tracking experiment – from test design and recording to analysis.
Designed to facilitate good experimental practice, Pro Lab makes it simple for beginners to get started with eye tracking and offers a large degree of flexibility as you grow your research ambitions.
Pro Lab works with our screen-based and wearable eye trackers as well as our VR headsets with integrated eye tracking.
Pro Lab adds efficiency in every step of your research process with a visual and functional user interface and specialized software features. You can easily create complex experiments, collect eye tracking data, observe and qualitatively analyze individual recordings, and aggregate data for quantitative analysis and visualization – all in a single solution.
Pro Lab's analysis and visualization tools allow you to easily process and prepare large volumes of eye tracking data for useful comparison, interpretation, and presentation. You can calculate a variety of eye tracking metrics and create visual representations of your data thus obtaining a top-down overview of your data and report findings.
Data you can trust
Pro Lab is built on a platform that ensures precise and consistent timing accuracy – down to the millisecond. Thanks to transparent tools for controlling your collected data, you can rely on your analysis and findings with confidence. This includes customizable gaze filters, full access to all raw gaze data as well as insights into metric calculations.
Integration and co-registration
Pro Lab facilitates the combination of eye tracking with biometric data streams, like EEG, GSR, and ECG. Native integration of the Shimmer3 GSR+ Unit provides a single software solution when used together with our screen-based hardware. For co-registration with other data sources, it's possible to send a TTL marker at every stimulus onset to ensure precise data synchronization.
Support for multiple study setups
Use Pro Lab in a wide range of study types – from stationary lab setups with screen-based, virtual, or physical stimuli, to participants moving around in real-world environments.
Flexible experiment design
Easily design randomized experiments with hundreds of stimuli for a variety of screen-based research paradigms and scenarios.

Transparent recording workflow
Present stimuli and record eye tracking data while monitoring the progress with user-friendly moderator and control tools.
Gaze replay and event coding
Replay recordings with participants' gaze superimposed. Use custom events to annotate segments of specific interest and to code user behavior for filtering out relevant data sets. Plot gaze data and adjust gaze filters with full transparency.
Automated mapping of Tobii Pro Glasses 2 data
Automatically aggregate and map data recorded with Pro Glasses 2 onto snapshots. Once the mapping is applied, you can immediately start visualizing the data and preparing it for extracting statistics, which dramatically reduces the time needed to analyze real-world eye tracking data.
Powerful analytics and visualizations
Calculate areas of interest (AOIs) or event metrics and visualize your data for quantitative analysis and interpretation. You can optimize your workflow by filtering out and focusing only on relevant data sets in order to answer research questions using behavioral-coding methods.
Integration with GSR (galvanic skin response)
Enrich your screen-based eye tracking study with GSR data and gain additional insights. By integrating the Shimmer3 GSR+ Unit, Pro Lab offers from study design and recording to visualization, analysis, and export of GSR data combined with eye tracking data.
This solution allows for the analysis of participants' emotional intensity concurrent with their visual attention to stimuli.
Simple data synchronization
Co-register stimuli presentation and eye tracking data recordings with other biometric data streams without the need for configuration or extensive technical knowledge.
In this video, Estefania Dominguez, Biometric Specialist at Tobii Pro, gives a research perspective on the challenges and benefits of combining eye tracking and EEG.
Tobii Pro Lab is a comprehensive solution that works with all of our eye trackers – from screen-based to wearable. You can choose from three different editions to meet your specific needs: Full, Analyzer, Presenter, and VR 360.
For users of screen-based eye trackers from Tobii Pro, the Full edition provides the complete set of tools needed to support all steps of the study workflow. From experiment design and data recording to comprehensive analysis, visualization, and comprehensive data export. The Full edition covers all of the features offered by the Analyzer, Presenter and VR 360 editions.
The Analyzer edition gives access to automated mapping of Tobii Pro Glasses 2 data and the tools needed for post analysis, visualization, and export of your data. If you use Pro Glasses 2, data recording is supported by the Tobii Pro Glasses Controller software, so you do not need the Full edition.
If you use our screen-based eye trackers, the Presenter edition supports experiment design, data recording, and raw data export. Your collected data can then be analyzed using the Analyzer edition of Pro Lab or a third-party software for data processing and analysis (i.e. SPSS, Matlab, or Excel).
This edition is intended for users who want to collect eye tracking data from 360-degree images and videos within a VR environment. Supporting the entire workflow from study design and recording, to analysis and visualization output, it also integrates with GSR sensors for even more comprehensive behavioral data. The VR 360 edition is included in the full edition of Pro Lab.
Here, you can download a trial version of Pro Lab. The download is free for 30 days and allows you to try some of the key features of our new software.
Below, you can also find sample projects for screen-based or wearable eye tracking studies.
The trial software is the most up-to-date version available. If you create or open projects in this version, you will not be able to use these projects in older versions of the software.
There, you will also find training articles, the user manual, and sample projects for practicing.
Pro Lab has tools that enable you to manage randomization and efficiently design trial-based experiments with and without replacement.
