Introducing Tobii Pro

Tobii Pro helps business and science professionals gain valuable insights into human behavior. Our high-quality eye tracking solutions capture human behavior in a natural way, ultimately affording users access to valuable, objective data about real responses to stimuli.

Eye tracking has long been used to analyze user behavior and user interface usability in a wide range of human-computer interaction (HCI) research and practices and as an actual control medium in a human–computer dialogue.

Our remote eye trackers for onscreen research allow unobtrusive and efficient usability testing of websites, software and computer games. They capture user eye movements, sounds, videos, scrolling web pages and transitions, mouse clicks and keystrokes, as well as external stimuli and triggers.
