IS5 Platform

A compact and power-efficient eye tracking and biometric platform

Advanced eye tracking and biometric platform

Our 7th generation eye tracker platform, the IS5, is a compact and power-efficient eye tracking solution.

Designed to integrate seamlessly with consumer devices and purpose-built equipment, it is a catalyst for the development of new, leading-edge applications, while delivering an innovative eye tracking experience for professionals and consumers alike.

Unique to the IS5, are its modular design and infrared light illumination technology, which operates on a wavelength that is invisible to the human eye. These design characteristics allow for easy and discreet integration into most applications with minimal impact on industrial design.

Illumination Module
Illumimator for NIR light, featuring a low-profile lens for easy integration, high efficiency, and low power consumption.
5
Host Interfaced Module
The central unit of the system, controlling and providing interfaces to the EyeSensor and Illumination Modules. Features a USB for standardized integration with target systems.

The basics

  1. Infrared light generated by the Illumination Module creates reflection patterns on the user’s eyes.
  2. Sensors detect eye movements, enabling gaze to be determined from analysis of the reflection patterns in combination with additional data measured from the user’s face and eyes.
  3. Combining data about the user’s gaze, position, and presence enables:
    • Powerful human-machine interaction
    • Resource optimization
    • Training and skills transfer
    • Assessment and treatment of medical conditions and human behaviors

For machines and devices

The IS5 can be easily integrated into:

  • Personal computers, such as laptops, ultrabooks, and notebooks
  • Desktop monitors
  • PC peripherals 
  • Medical devices
  • Simulators and monitoring equipment
  • Bespoke, purpose-built, devices and equipment

Calculating gaze point, eye position, head pose, and biometric data, the IS5 delivers robust, accurate eye tracking for integration with consumer and bespoke equipment with support for application development.

Our custom sensors provide the optimal camera for eye tracking. The unique Tobii EyeChip™ houses the calculation algorithms and control for the IS5 module, delivering just the data to an application, avoiding additional load on the host CPU and enabling advanced power schemes.

To provide the data, the platform includes the Tobii Stream Engine service, delivering: streamed eye tracking, configuration, as well as calibration data. In addition, the platform includes our SDK so that you can kick off your development process and build the applications you need to grow your business.  

Tracks anyone, anywhere.

Designed for inclusion – Tobii’s advanced eye tracking caters for a wider range of human characteristics than any other solution available. It functions irrespective of pupil size, people who use glasses or contact lenses, the presence of dirt, makeup, or smudges.

Designed for all conditions – the platform can track a user’s gaze direction across a wider variety of conditions than any other platform available. It caters for varying user positions and lighting conditions.

Designed for consistent accuracy – the platform maintains consistent data accuracy for the wide range of human characteristics and environmental conditions – better than any other available solution. It is proven to work for practically anyone.

Footprint, performance, and size

The IS5 Eye Tracking Module is uniquely designed to deliver optimal performance, offering the most power-efficient eye tracking solution – that’s both competitively priced and easy to integrate.

To maximize freedom of placement, the IS5 has been designed in a modular way. Delivered as three separate components, it can adapt to fit your designs. The IS5 compact size, low CPU and bus load makes it ideal for integration into consumer devices

Tobii EyeChip™

The Tobii IS5 platform includes the first ever SoC ASIC developed specifically for eye tracking.

So much more than Eye Tracking...

Tobii IS5 is engineered as a multimodality platform, bringing superior eye tracking functionality as well as biometric performance data to machines and applications. The platform and Tobii EyeSensors deliver images of the face ensuring robust multimodal performance and biometric data.

In addition to eye tracking, Tobii IS5 provides a platform for:

  • Head position
  • Head tracking
  • Gestures
  • Facial feature tracking
  • Presence

Eye tracking can be combined with these modalities together with other input control devices such as a keyboard, touchpad, or voice to provide the user with the most natural and intuitive way to interact with machines and applications.
