Comprehensive toolkit for the development of analytical applications
The Tobii Pro SDK is a comprehensive toolkit to help researchers and software partners easily build analytical applications for research use with screen-based eye trackers from Tobii. It is designed specifically for the development of applications to analyze gaze data.
This kit supports the entire product portfolio of screen-based eye trackers from Tobii Pro. See details on the supported eye trackers.
Download the Pro SDK free of charge.
The Pro SDK is free of charge and requires programming skills in order to properly use it. Support access is limited to troubleshooting problems on the hardware and reporting possible bugs. Consultancy services are available for purchase if assistance is needed for programming.
“The new Tobii Pro SDK is extremely well-thought out and a significant improvement on the previous Tobii Pro Analytics SDK. The command logic is clean and clearly explained, and data structures are easy to interpret and provide exactly the information needed.”
One SDK, many applications
The Pro SDK offers multi-platform support (Windows, Linux, and Mac) and API bindings for several programming languages (.NET, Python, Matlab, and C). This enables the development of many different kinds of analytical applications—from custom research paradigms for scientific research to commercial applications. Built on a solid foundation, the Pro SDK reuses functionality across the different platforms and bindings.
See details on the supported platforms and languages.
Advanced gaze data for your research
The Pro SDK gives you access to advanced gaze data streams that are relevant to your research.
The Pro SDK is the ideal and only choice for researchers who want to develop analytical applications, i.e. applications that analyze behavior based on data from the eye tracker. Other Tobii SDKs do not include a license for analytical use. Please see the end-user license agreements of Tobii's SDKs for more details.
Precise timing control
The Pro SDK offers advanced timing support, giving researchers precise timing control.
Designed for ease-of-use
The Pro SDK is designed to be easy to use for researchers and students without compromising the functionality needed by experienced developers.

New, efficient Eye Tracker Manager
The Pro SDK is complemented by the Eye Tracker Manager application, which helps you manage your eye tracker. This tool will allow you to update the firmware, change the sampling frequency, calibrate the user, and configure the display area in scenarios where the eye tracker is used with a screen.
The Eye Tracker Manager is available for all screen-based eye trackers from Tobii Pro and works with both Windows and Mac systems. Support for the Tobii Pro X3-120 requires an EPU, if you are running it on a Mac.
Configuring the hardware to a standalone scenario (using the eye tracker without a screen) is only available with the Tobii Pro Spectrum.
Below are the versions of different operating systems we guarantee the Pro SDK will work with. The kit will most likely work with other versions as well, but these are the only ones we have assured will work through extensive testing performed by our team.
