SensoMotoric Instruments (SMI) has recently unveiled its next-generation eye tracking platform aimed at demanding cognitive research in and out of the lab. The SMI RED250mobile eye tracking system is intended for studies on neurodegenerative disorders. The lightest of its kind with 250Hz sampling rate allows saccadic grade eye tracking also outside of the lab in the environment familiar to participants, the company indicated.

On the same next generation platform, the company also announced a "smaller brother" to the SMI RED250mobile. The SMI REDn Scientific features an extra-large tolerance for head movements and is designed for instant fixation-based studies in schools, hospitals or kindergartens.

The SMI eye tracker family is based on next-generation algorithms for an unprecedented level of robustness and precision with high tolerance for vision correction, the company stated. The hardware is fully compatible with SMI's Experiment Suite Scientific software for experiment design, recording and analysis. It supports key research paradigms, such as Visual Paired Comparison, Visual World and Preferential Looking and provides higher efficiency and less manual work through the entire workflow.

The contact-free eye tracking systems is ready for integration with leading solutions of key partners in scientific instruments. Both the SMI RED250mobile and the SMI REDn Scientific support TTL triggers for easy interfacing with biometric data collection systems.

SMI also brings its eye tracking technology to virtual reality. The company has also launched what it says is the world's first eye tracking solution for the Oculus Rift DK2 HMD. The package comes with an SDK for real-time streaming of eye and gaze data and support for popular VR engines, e.g. Unity and Vizard.
