Abstract

Over the last years eye tracking became more and more popular. A variety of new eye-tracker models and algorithms for eye tracking data processing emerged. On the one hand this multitude of hard- and software brought many advantages, on the other hand the diversity of devices and measures impedes the comparability and repeatability of eye-tracking studies. While supply of eye tracking software is high, the functioning of the algorithms, e.g. how fixations are identified, is often intransparent and unflexible. The Eyetrace software bundle approaches these problems by providing a variety of different evaluation methods compatible with many eye-tracker models. Eyetrace2014 combines state-of-the-art algorithms with established approaches and provides a continuous visualization of the analysis process. All calculations provide user adaptable parameters and are well documented and referenced in order to make the whole analysis transparent. Our software is available free of charge well suited for exploratory data analysis and education (http://www.ti.uni-tuebingen.de/Eyetrace.1751.0.html).
