The Analysis Division of Tobii Technology, the leader in eye-tracking research solutions, today announced its partnership with Ergoneers, a leading provider of ergonomic engineering solutions. Ergoneers will resell Tobii’s world-leading remote eye-tracking systems with its comprehensive measurement and analysis software, D-Lab, and custom-built driving simulators.
Tobii’s remote eye trackers will provide D-Lab users with more options for collecting eye-tracking data in simulator environments. Remote eye tracking will provide new opportunities to more effectively analyze and optimize human-machine interaction in the transportation industry, to which Ergoneers already offers solutions built around its wearable eye-tracking system, Dikablis.
“We are excited to add Tobii’s world-leading remote eye trackers to our portfolio. This will enable us to model and create tailored simulator solutions based on eye tracking in a larger variety and meet the requirements of more users and research scenarios,” said Marlene Gagesch, product manager D-Lab at Ergoneers.
D-Lab is a powerful all-in-one research tool for objectively measuring and analyzing human behavior in both real-world and simulated situations. D-Lab is extremely versatile in analyzing various types of data from any kind of analog or digital data streams, including remote eye tracking, eye tracking in head-mounted displays, different kinds of audio and video output, and physiological measures.
Tobii’s eye trackers are ideal for simulator testing because the remote eye trackers offer a revolutionary large track box that allows participants to move freely and naturally during task performance while still maintaining unparalleled tracking accuracy. A high level of accuracy and efficiency can be achieved for the in-depth study of select features of a simulated interface.
“Eye tracking is quickly becoming a standard research tool for simulator environments,” said Tom Englund, president of analysis solutions at Tobii. “We are excited about the partnership with Ergoneers, one of the most successful and innovative providers of simulator solutions for the automotive space. We look forward to working together with their team to uncover new insights related to driver safety, comfort, usability, and more. This new partnership aligns strongly with our overall strategy and vision of bringing eye tracking into a wider variety of research environments and applications.”
