Features

Support for multiple studies

Use the software in a wide range of paradigms and study types to analyze data from participants that are moving in the real world, as well as for more stationary experimental designs that involve presenting stimuli on a screen or with physical objects.

  • Import and analyze Tobii Pro Glasses 2 recordings
  • Screen-based experiment design, recording, and analysis with the possibility to integrate other biometric sensors
  • Scene camera recordings and analysis with the possibility to integrate other biometric sensors

Flexible experiment design

Easily design randomized and counter-balanced experiments with up to hundreds of stimuli for a variety of screen-based research paradigms and scenarios.

  • Images and video stimuli
  • Multiple trials
  • Efficient drag-and-drop interface with in-line editing
  • Change settings for multiple trials with a click

Transparent recording workflow

Present stimuli and record eye tracking data while monitoring the progress with user-friendly moderator and control tools.

  • Intuitive setup of your sensors, including the scene camera, eye trackers, and other biometric devices
  • Flexible calibration before and during recordings, with numeric results feedback
  • Dedicated infant calibration tool
  • Live status of recording devices and sensors
  • Viewing of participants' live gaze
Tobii Pro Lab software feature: Event Coding

Gaze replay and event coding

Replay recordings with participants' gaze superimposed. Use 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.

  • Gaze replay and video export
  • Event coding and event export
  • Gaze charts plotting gaze data screen coordinates and gaze velocity
  • Adjustable gaze filters for eye movement classifications

Automated Real-World Mapping

Automatically aggregate and map data recorded with Tobii Pro Glasses 2 onto snapshots. Once the mapping is applied, you can immediately start extracting statistics or begin visualizing the data, which dramatically reduces the time needed to analyze real-world eye tracking data.

  • Confidence graph indicates the algorithm's ability to map gaze points accurately
  • Option to override or complement automatically-mapped points using manual coding

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.

  • Heatmap and gaze plot visualizations
  • Metrics based on static and dynamic AOIs
  • Task-based event metrics
  • Export of raw data and metrics with advanced filtering options to only export relevant data sets

Tobii Pro Lab: GSR Integration

Integration with GSR (galvanic skin response)

Combine eye tracking with GSR data and gain deeper insight into human behavior. Integrating the Shimmer3 GSR+ Unit, Pro Lab offers everything from study design and recording, to the visualization, analysis, and export of GSR data, together with eye tracking data, in a single software solution.

  • Integrated recording and automatic synchronization of GSR data and eye tracking data from our screen-based eye trackers
  • Display of GSR and eye tracking data charts on the same timeline
  • Filtering of GSR dataand GSR metrics
  • Export of GSR data and metrics, together with eye tracking, in one file

This solution allows for the analysis of participants' emotional intensity concurrent with their visual attention to stimuli.

Simple data synchronization

Easily synchronize stimuli presentation and eye tracking data recordings with other biometric data streams without the need for configuration or extensive technical knowledge.

  • TTL signals, sent from the software through a parallel port on stimulus onset, are turned on with a click of the mouse
  • Precise and consistent millisecond-timing of stimulus onset and duration
  • Presentation of images on the screen for as short as 50 milliseconds
  • Use sent events for efficient synchronization

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.

Software editions

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, and Presenter.

 

Full edition

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 and Presenter editions.

Analyzer edition

The Analyzer edition gives access to automated Real-World Mapping and the tools needed for a comprehensive 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.

Presenter 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).

Try it

Download the free trial of Tobii 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.

Learn & Support

The latest release of Pro Lab provides a full research solution to integrate GSR in your experiment. From data recording to analysis and metrics, GSR can now be added to your eye tracking experiment to easily relate visual behavior with emotional arousal.

Check out our video to the right and get a quick introduction to the galvanic skin response, or GSR, features in Pro Lab.
