Tobii AB (publ) Key Developments
Tobii Pro Extends its Line of Wearable Technology with a New Version of Tobii Pro Glasses 2
Nov 24 15
Tobii Pro extends its line of wearable technology with a new version of Tobii Pro Glasses 2. With a frame rate of 100 Hz (images per second), this eye tracker will enable researchers to collect more detailed data for in-depth analysis and real-world insights. Eye tracking is a powerful and rapidly-growing research method for understanding human behavior. Wearable solutions, where peoples’ eye movements are registered by a pair of eye-tracking glasses, have revolutionized and helped broaden insights with this methodology into a wider range of research fields. Tobii Pro Glasses 2 is ideal for everything from in-store shopper and communication studies, to ethnographic and human performance research. Instead of observing people in artificial lab environments, researchers can study how participants perform tasks in public places, at work or in their homes. This research tool shows exactly what a person is looking at in real time, while they move around freely in any environment. Tobii Pro now doubles the frame rate of Tobii Pro Glasses 2, the world’s smallest, most natural and easy-to-use eye-tracking glasses, by introducing a new 100 Hz version. This new product provides a premium solution for research with more intense requirements when it comes to data granularity and time-based measurements. It gives scientists the unique ability to analyze and accurately report how eye-movement profiles, such as fixations and saccades, vary across different tasks, while capturing the most natural viewing behavior, easily and efficiently. The higher frame rate will be beneficial for a wide range of applications, like measuring cognitive load in driving research, operator assessment, research into visual attention of athletes or reading in natural settings.
