Red500 image


The SMI RED500 system combines ease of use and high data quality with high-speed capabilities. Saccade measurements and shortest latencies with fully remote, fiducial-free and contact-free setup are possible, even with less compliant subject groups.

How it Works

Remote, contact-free setup for eye movement studies
Binocular gaze & pupil data
For monitor & TV (from 19", 22"... 60") and projection (... 300")
Free head movement (40cmx20cm at 70cm distance)
Operating distance: 60cm - 80cm
High Accuracy: 0.4°
Spacial Resolution (RMS): 0.03°
Short latency: <4ms
Variable calibration modes: 2,5,9 points, children module
Fast & automatic calibration: <3 sec (2 point) 
Works with most glasses and contact lenses
Free of charge API/SDK

Features and Benefits

Feature Benefit
Fast, reliable and automaticThe high-resolution sensor allows the subject free head movement across a wide range, while the powerful software automatically locates the eyes and compensates motion. Non-moving optics ensure optimal robustness during stationary and mobile use. The fully automatic calibration takes only seconds and maintains drift-free accuracy throughout the experiment. Flexible calibration options address various experiment requirements, including 2-point, child-friendly versions with custom and animated fixation targets
Integration with EEG, other sensors and devicesIntegrated with other devices like EEG or bio-sensors, as well as with camera observation systems. EEG integrations are easy with e.g. with ABM, ANT, BioSemi, BrainProducts, EGI, and eMotiv.
Robust eytracking for all subject populationsThe most robust remote eye tracking systems available - regardless of eye color, age, glasses or contacts, etc, and gives immediate feedback of robustness and eye tracking quality
Real time analysisAn integrated GUI provides real-time information on a single screen. The eye tracker can be used to measure the gaze position, eye movements and pupil dynamics, record stimulus screen content and automatically analyze user-defined areas of interest within the subject's field of view
Simplified post-processingCompatible with third-party stimulus packages (e.g. EPrime, Presentation, Superlab) and powerful analysis software, such as SMI's Experiment Suite. Also, the systems can export the recorded data in ASCII format for post-processing using standard analysis software like Matlab or SPSS
APR & SDK includedThe RED eye trackers come with SMI’s application programming interface (API), and SDK which are available free of charge. It can easily be used to integrate SMI eye trackers into custom applications and experiments.


Here are some of the many scenarios which have used RED500:

Eyetracking and brain activity measurement
Psychology, Psychiatry & Psycholinguistics
A range of studies in adults and children
Usability, Human Factors and Ergonomics
Investigating intractions between users and devices, vehicles and interfaces
Market Research
Understanding consumer behaviour and reaching the consumer
