Intellectual property

The foundation of technology

Patent portfolio

Tobii holds international patents in foundational and evolving eye tracking technologies. In addition to our extensive patent portfolio, which dates back to 1988, we take care to maintain and protect our internal intellectual property and long-standing know-how related to eye tracking.

Tobii holds a collection of patents, applications, and intellectual property in a range of eye tracking related technologies:

Image sensors

Our IP addresses the design, control, and readout of data from image sensors to improve the robustness, cost- and power-efficiency of eye tracking.


Our lP addresses illumination types, timing, direction, and frequency to maximize tracking performance and minimize power consumption and cost.

System design

Addressing both screen-based and wearable eye tracking technologies, our IP relates to physical integration techniques, calibration methods, and system layouts. These proprietary technologies facilitate the design of robust, low cost, and high accuracy eye tracking systems.

Algorithms and methods

Our IP addresses algorithms and methods for performing and implementing robust, consistently accurate, and cost-efficient eye tracking.

Eye gaze interaction methods

This intellectual property addresses the use of gaze as an input in multimodal user interfaces and incorporation of gaze into operating systems —c oncepts fundamental to gaze-based multimodal interaction.

Specific applications and use cases

In addition to IP related to eye tracking, our portfolio includes patents, applications and intellectual property relating to specific uses and applications for eye tracking, in industries such as automotive, biometrics, consumer engagement measurement, teleconferencing, and wearables
