Support for scene camera studies

It is now possible to create scene camera projects for study scenarios or setups where screen-based eye trackers are used without a screen. This project type enables researchers to record, analyze, and export metrics and raw data in more stationary studies that involve the use of physical objects or surfaces as stimuli (e.g shelves, printed materials, mobile screens, or other scenes).

Full edition, Presenter edition

Flexible calibration stimulus

The ability to import the researchers’ own videos for calibration stimuli adds more flexibility to the calibration routine. Choosing the type of target according to your test design and type of participants increases the likelihood of a successful calibration. Unique videos can better engage the participant’s attention and improve the consequent data quality during the recording.

Tobii Pro Lab (version 1.61)

Integrated recording of GSR data

This version of Pro Lab adds new biometric capabilities through the integration of a wearable GSR (galvanic skin response) sensor – the Shimmer3 GSR+ Unit. This integration enables simultaneous recording and automatic synchronization of GSR data and eye tracking data from our screen-based eye trackers, as well as the export of raw GSR data and eye tracking data in one file. It is the first step towards a full integration into a single, end-to-end solution which will also accommodate for combined analysis.

Full edition, Presenter edition

Improved calibration routine

Numeric calibration results have been added to the eye tracking calibration feedback, allowing you to set objective acceptance thresholds criteria to your calibration routine and report the calibration results. It is also possible to recalibrate single points, improving workflow efficiency in studies with subjects that are unable to sustain attention for multiple targets.

Moderator tool

The moderator tool displays the participant’s live gaze and the position of the eyes in the track box. This provides a way to monitor recordings on a second screen and an alert tool if a participant moves out of range of the tracker or if something is interfering with the data.

Full edition, Presenter edition

TTL sync out and in

Pro Lab has the possibility to automatically send precise timing signals at the start of a stimulus presentation as TTL onset markers through a parallel port. The software also offers the option to receive TTL signals from external devices. Sync out and sync in allow researchers to synchronize stimuli presentation and gaze data with other biometric data streams.

Full edition, Presenter edition

Millisecond timing accuracy

The software’s very accurate and consistent timing of stimuli presentation, down to the millisecond, gives you full control over your experiment. It’s possible to show stimuli as short as 50 ms without jeopardizing timing accuracy.
