Tobii Toolbox for Matlab

New software from Tobii Technology allows researchers to directly control and program Tobii eye trackers within Matlab, the numerical computing software from MathWorks. This will allow users of Tobii eye trackers to run eye-tracking experiments directly from the research software programme.

The Tobii Toolbox for Matlab provides an interface between Matlab and Tobii eye trackers, via the Tobii software development kit, in a Windows environment. This means that researchers can take full advantage of the stimulus generation and data analysis power that its associated toolboxes provide.

The new software enables the user to check the track status of the subject, calibrate and collect gaze data (i.e. the starting and stopping of recordings) and synchronise events with gaze data within Matlab. The Visual C++ module contains a graphical interface that displays the current eye tracking status as well as the calibration results.
