Date Published：11/17/2014 02:11:37 PM
SENSOMOTORIC Instruments (SMI) promotes the SMI RED250mobile eye tracking system at the Society for Neuroscience 2014 meeting (SfN 2014) held from November 15 to 19 in Washington D.C., USA.
Eye tracking solution uses SensoMotoric Instruments’s universal next-generation software and algorithm platform
The next-generation high-performance eye tracking platform, which is suitable for studies on neurodegenerative disorders and other demanding cognitive research inside and outside laboratories, features a 250Hz sampling rate. This enables saccadic-grade eye tracking.
The company also introduces the SMI REDn Scientific, which features extra large tolerance for head movements to support instant fixation-based studies in schools, hospitals, or kindergartens.
The SMI RED250mobile and SMI REDn Scientific adopt TTL triggers to ensure an easy interface with biometric data collection systems. The new generation of contact-free eye tracking systems uses next-generation algorithms for greater precision and high tolerance for vision correction.
The hardware works with the company’s Experiment Suite Scientific software for experiment design, recording, and analysis. It features key research paradigms such as Visual Paired Comparison, Visual World, and Preferential Looking.
The company is also promoting the world's first Eye Tracking solution for the Oculus Rift DK2 HMD during the SfN 2014. The package comprises an SDK for real-time streaming of eye and gaze data. It supports popular VR engines such as Unity and Vizard.
SMI’s eye tracking solutions are used by the most renowned research institutions worldwide, including the Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences of the University of Rochester, the Department of Psychology at Stanford University, and the Infant Cognition and Language Lab at University of Berkeley. They are also utilized at the Department of Biological Psychology and Psychophysiology of Humboldt University Berlin, Harvard University, the Chinese Academy of Sciences, the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences and many others.
According to SMI managing director Eberhard Schmidt, all of the company’s eye tracking innovations such as the Natural Gaze? head gear for the SMI Eye Tracking Glasses 2 Wireless, new integrations for key research paradigms in the software, the REDn and RED250mobile eye tracking systems, and the SMI Eye Tracking integration for the Oculus Rift DK2, adopt the firm’s universal next-generation software and algorithm platform.
