Tobii Glasses 2 – 50hz and MEMS Sensor Update April 27, 2015Posted by Jon Ward in Uncategorized.
The Tobii Glasses 2 eyetracker has been an amazing success, with its unobtrusive design, wide field of view for tracking and slippage compensation due to the unique 4 camera tracking system – but now the system gets even better.
Firstly the system will be updated on the next firmware release to track at 50hz on each eye camera, and this benefit will be for all customers, new and existing, and will happen by way of a standard firmware update – no need to return the system to us! As a quick note if you are currently capturing data at 30hz and require consistency within your study, don’t update your glasses just yet as the system cannot be downgraded after the update.
The second update is the activation of the MEMS sensors – so the accelerometer and gyroscope in the device will collect data alongside your eye tracking data – this unique innovation has many potential uses in your research and we are excited to see how people integrate this in their studies.
For those that want to know more about the update there is a webinar tomorrow (sorry for the short notice!) which you can see the details of here : http://www.tobii.com/en/eye-tracking-research/global/about-tobii-pro/event-calendar/tobii-events/tobii-glasses-2-webinar-join-us-for-tobii-pro-glasses-2-50-hz-mems-better-than-ever/ or of course feel free to give us a call!
