See what others see. In real-time.
Two years in the making, built on innovative technology, ongoing iterative user experience (UX) testing, as well as critical feedback from customers of our first generation eye tracker, EyeGuide Mobile Tracker has been developed to be the ideal combination of affordability, flexibility, and capability.
Some places where EyeGuide technology is used.
You can view detailed technical specifications here, but a brief review below of our Mobile Tracker’s key features shows that it is a complete eye tracking system, hardware and software included, which offers advantages far superior to other mobile tracking systems, making it a platform you can rely on for conducting studies in almost any environment.
With the increased emphasis on in situ or field testing so that researchers can gain a more accurate understanding of how users actually engage with technology or carry out other real-world activities, the EyeGuide® Mobile Tracker is a turn-key solution for implementing, in the field
- Mobile technology evaluation
- Driving, flying, or other training and research where users are operating vehicles or equipment
- Sports research, during practice or even in game situations
- Mixed media research as users engage with different technology in a mobile environment
- Shopping or other consumer research
- Eye tracking of art, billboards, signs, and other non-screen objects, products, and displays
- Printed book, magazines, and other hard copy publication research
The research possibilities are unlimited, simply because of EyeGuide® Mobile Tracker’s features. Ready to buy? Contact EyeGuide today.
Lightweight. Wearable. Non-Intrusive.
Flexible eye tracking.
The Mobile Tracker is designed for users with head sizes ranging from 6.5 to 8 (US), so it will accommodate testing on young children through adults. Its headset design allows for researchers to communicate with users during testing, and since the Mobile Tracker is a headset, users with glasses can wear it. In addition, it relies on a hot mirror to calibrate and track the user’s eye movements, so no camera obstructs the user’s regular vision.
HD, Wide-Angle Scene Camera.
The Mobile Tracker’s built-in scene camera boasts a 90 degree horizontal field of view, the widest among all mobile eye tracking systems. In fact, the scene camera returns HD video covering the user’s entire natural field of view. A novel hardware/software solution guarantees head movement compensation and the mitigation of parallax distortion, ensuring 0.5 degree gaze position accuracy (assuming adequate initial calibration), indoors or out, even if the user is moving around carrying out physically demanding or just natural everyday tasks.
Platform Independent. Wireless.
5+ Hours of Testing Time.
The Mobile Tracker has its own built-in operating system, so you can use it with any platform you choose, e.g. Microsoft Windows, Apple OS X, Apple iOS (iPad, iPhone), Android phones and tablets, etc. Connect to the Tracker using any device supporting the common 802.11g wireless protocol and see what the user is viewing—live—from the device of your choice. And the battery and storage pack, which can be worn on a belt or in a large pocket, allows you to record video and eye tracking data as part of a test for more than five hours before recharging or downloading the test results. Of course, you can record data via the wireless connection to any external storage medium, and you also can connect the Mobile Tracker directly to AC power for non-stop use.
Analytical and Visualization Software Built-in along with a Real-Time API.
Included in the price of the Mobile Tracker is a full suite of software to help you test, observe, and analyze eye tracking data. Our EyeGuide® Analyze software can be viewed in detail here, but new improvements to it include Pre-Defined Areas of Interest (AOIs), which complement other tools including heat maps, gaze plots, and dynamic clusters. You can watch users live from any device using our EyeGuide® Visualize software. You can also control testing, either communicating with the user, or toggling the area of interest so that data collection can be focused dynamically: you can switch, for example, from emphasizing a laptop screen to an object in the user’s physical environment, then back to the laptop screen or perhaps a smart phone screen. As always, EyeGuide® allows you to set up tests with tasks and carry out calibration. Finally, a real-time API (application programming interface) is always available—beamed directly from the hardware—for customized data analysis using the software of your choice.
