Tobii Pro Eye Tracker Manager

Free software to set up screen-based eye trackers


Efficient configuration and setting

The Tobii Pro Eye Tracker Manager is a configuration and setting utility that helps you manage your connected eye trackers and calibrate users. It is available free of charge and greatly increases efficiency for users of either Tobii Pro SDK or Tobii Pro Lab.

The Tobii Pro Eye Tracker Manager allows researchers to easily configure the eye tracker when it's being used with a screen. This application is also used to configure the hardware in scene camera setups, where physical objects are used as stimuli. For users of the Mobile Testing Accessory the Tobii Pro Eye Tracker Manager offers a wizard and simplified process of setting up and configuring the eye tracker for testing mobile devices.

If your eye tracker supports different sampling frequencies or eye tracking modes, these are changed using Tobii Pro Eye Tracker Manager. The modes adapt the way the eye tracker collects gaze data.

For Tobii Pro Spectrum, Tobii Pro Fusion and Tobii Pro Nano, Tobii Pro Eye Tracker Manager is used to update the eye tracker firmware. For other eye tracker models, firmware is updated using the Eye Tracker Browser tool.


Fast and reliable user calibration

The Tobii Pro Eye Tracker Manager offers an efficient option for users of the Tobii Pro SDK to conduct fast and reliable user calibrations. Prior to the calibration, a track status panel indicates the location of the participant's eyes within the track box.

If requested by our technical support team, a diagnostics data file can be created and exported for extensive troubleshooting.

Integration with your application

Tobii Pro Eye Tracker Manager can be integrated with analytical applications built on the Tobii Pro SDK using call-in functions. Tobii Pro SDK will still give researchers full flexibility, but common parts of the workflow of an eye tracking software application, such as configuring the display area, viewing the track status (a visualization of the head box), and conducting user calibration, can easily be done with this tool, reducing the amount of coding needed. The integration, which is seamless, makes it easy and efficient for researchers to create their own applications.


Eye images

Eye images can be viewed live in the Tobii Pro Eye Tracker Manager for models which support this functionality, currently these would be the Tobii Pro Spectrum and Tobii Pro Fusion products. This allows researchers to understand what is potentially affecting their eye tracking data.

  1. Running Tobii Pro Eye Tracker Manger on ARM-64 arhitecture is done using the Rosetta compatibility mode.
Tobii software requires full administrator rights and does not support roaming profiles.
Installing/running Tobii software in virtual machines (locally or on a server) is not supported. Running projects over network drives or cloud storage is also not supported.
If you have a multiple-screen setup, always use "extend screen", never "duplicate screen". 
You can avoid negative timing effects and interference from other machines in the same network by using a direct connection between your computer and the Tobii Pro eye tracker. We do not recommend using extension cables, USB hubs, adapters, etc.
