Your eye tracker with multiple interaction methods

  

Combine eye tracking and dictation

When the voice is picked up perfectly, dictation is the fastest way to convert the spoken word into written text. The PCEye Plus has a high quality 4-array microphone system integrated into the eye tracker. By that, you now have two extremely efficient interaction methods at hand and can freely switch between them to find the right individual balance.

Combine eye tracking and switch

PCEye Plus has an integrated switch port, providing you with a switch connection exactly where you need it. Eye tracking and switch gives you the power to control your computer more intentionally. With the “sticky left click” the mouse curser follows your eyes constantly and whenever you hit the switch, a left click is performed.

Expertise and experience you can rely on

  

High precision and accuracy

The PCEye Plus, together with the zoom functionality of Windows Control, allows you to hit even the smallest targets on the screen, almost with pixel precision, again and again.

Head movement compensation

Move freely within the trackbox while maintaining superior precision and accuracy. Should you move outside of the trackbox, the PCEye Plus will quickly find your eyes again and continue to track them.

Largest trackbox

The trackbox, the imaginary volume within which you can move your head without losing accuracy, or interrupting the eye tracking session, is among the largest on the market. The large size gives you the freedom to sit or lie down comfortably with maintained eye tracking performance.

Superior trackability

The PCEye Plus provides high-quality tracking results for over 95% of users*, compared to any other system, regardless of most lighting conditions, eye color, or if you are wearing contacts or glasses.

Normalcy and cutting edge design

  

Tobii Dynavox PCEye Plus

The design of the eye tracker as well as the software inherits the latest trends in consumer electronics. Our software is designed with Microsoft Windows in mind and we have further improved the look and feel of the hardware to align the PCEye Plus with the silver/black color theme of the Tobii Dynavox family.

Picture of the PCEye Plus switch port

The back of the eye tracker is made from magnesium, which is optimal for heat distribution and reduces the weight. The two-part design of the front gives the device a very modern look and emphasizes the microphone slot, which stands out visually from other eye trackers.

Windows Hello

  

Biometric security has never been this seamless. Automatically sign in to Windows 10 by using your eye tracker with the next generation Windows Control as a Windows Hello camera. If your Windows 10 computer is not set to fully go to sleep, you can always unlock the screen with your presence and Windows Hello. This is a Windows 10 only feature. See the PCEye Plus manual for how to set it up.

Portability and Flexibility

  

Tobii Dynavox PCEye Plus desktop

The PCEye Plus fits perfectly on most laptop and desktop monitors with an excellent performance on up to 27’’ screens. Processing takes place on the PCEye Plus, enabling he usage of old and low performance PCs. This means high flexibility and low additional investments. The setup possibilities are numerous due to a 75cm long USB 2 cable and a light and slim design of the eye tracker.

Tobii Dynavox PCEye Plus

In addition, the long cable makes it possible to use the eye tracker on an external monitor and the switch port allows for switch use directly where needed. Once mounted, the same magnet mount bracket can be used with the PCEye Plus, PCEye Mini and PCEye Explore.

EyeR – environmental control

  

Picture of the Tobii Dynavox EyeR

The PCEye Plus comes with a uniquely designed EyeR dongle that opens the door to IR without the need for any additional equipment. This unlocks the entire range of IR including the control of sensory rooms, IR toys, TVs and smart home functions. To use it, simply connect the dongle via USB to your computer or laptop, direct the IR signal at the intended device and take control.

Robust and extremely flexible

  

All elements of the EyeR like the USB connector, the flexible arm and the IR component are quality tested. The IR signal is emitted through the glass cover at a 180-degree angle. The small and lightweight IR dongle is extremely flexible and can be rotated 360 degrees. Once adjusted, the EyeR holds its position, so it can hang upside down, stand still and fit snuggly around corners. This flexibility ensures that the IR signals are directed perfectly at the device for optimal communication and control.

EyeR plugged in a laptop

Setting up EyeR is easy

Simply plug it into your computer’s USB port, and you can jump right into the included Virtual Remote software. Virtual Remote provides pre-programmed and manual options for setting up an IR connection, so you can start programming quickly.

Pre-programmed remotes

EyeR comes preprogrammed with many popular IR codes, helping you to simply create “Virtual Remotes” and take control of devices in your home or office. There is an extensive list of device brands to choose from and, once the brand is selected, all matching remotes are displayed, so that you can find the best one.

Manually programmed remotes

Here you are starting with a pre-filled layout, which consists of un-programmed buttons. These buttons can now be programmed individually according to your preferences. After the initial programming, every button can still be edited and changed.

Once chosen and set-up, the remote can still be edited afterwards.

Grow your individual path without the need to change hardware. Start with Gaze Point and Gaze Viewer to learn and explore eye tracking. Measure the progress and cognitive ability to evaluate potential growth into new regions like Windows Control or Communicator. The same PCEye Plus can take you from splat, smudge, paint, play and draw to full computer access with Windows Control. One hardware that meets you exactly where you are and takes you where you want to go.

Windows Control

We have streamlined our Windows Control software to give you a consistent experience with no room for confusion and no chance to get stuck. All settings and
features in Windows Control are gaze enabled. This means you have the ability to calibrate as well as change dwell time, users, languages, input methodology and much more. Fully gaze enabled settings means full control for you. 

Screenshot of Windows Control 2 in use

Windows Control makes it possible to control your desktop, or any other application, through a simple, two-step process that reduces the risk of unwanted clicks. All you have to do is select the desired task that you want to perform in the taskbar, like a double click. Then, look at the desired area or icon on the screen where you want to execute the task.

2 Head box describes the space in front of the eye tracker where the user must have at least one eye to get gaze data. The eye tracker is at a 20° angle looking upward from below the screen.

3For larger than recommended screens, the limiting parameter is the quality of the gaze accuracy at the upper corners of the screen when the user sits close to the screen.

4The degree-of-accuracy and precision over percentage-of-population numbers result from extensive testing across representatives of the whole population. We have made use of hundreds of thousands of diagnostic images and performed tests on approximately 800 individuals with different conditions, vision, ethnicities, everyday dust, smudges or blemishes around their eyes, with eyes out of focus, etc. This has resulted in a much more robust and high performance eye tracking experience and a much more realistic representation of true performance across the whole population, not just in a mathematically "ideal" scenario.

5The "ideal" degree numbers are the previous standard of measuring accuracy and precision, both previously from Tobii and presently from all eye tracking competitors. Though "ideal" numbers are useful to get a general feel about comparative quality and performance, they are not applicable to real world usage in the same way as quantitative degree-of-accuracy and precision over percentage-of-population numbers based on extensive testing across representatives of the whole population.
