Connect to eye-tracking device

If this template helps then use it. If not then just delete and start from scratch.

OS (e.g. Win10): Win 10
PsychoPy version (e.g. 1.84.x): v2023.2.0
Standard Standalone? (y) If not then what?:
What are you trying to achieve?:
I tried to connect the PsychoPy experiment with the Tobbi Fusion eye tracker.

What did you try to make it work?:
No, I couldn’t find any eye tracker device under the eye-tracking tab. According to the tutorial, (Communicating with an Eyetracker — PsychoPy v2023.2.2), there should be a list of eye trackers that can be connected, but I couldn’t find it (see the screenshot).

What specifically went wrong when you tried that?:

Include pasted full error message if possible. “That didn’t work” is not enough information.

Since v2023.2.0, the eye-tracking plugins are no longer built it:

Eyetrackers (Tobii, SRR Eyelink, Gazepoint, PupilLabs) are now plugins rather than built-in, in keeping with the drive to cut down the dependencies of core PsychoPy

You can see it written in the release notes of v2023.2.0:

You can now access it through the plugin list:

  1. Press on “Get More +” in the component list.
  2. Search for “Tobii”.
  3. Install


Thanks for the reply! Yes, I have installed the Tobii Eyetracker as Plugins according to your guidance, what are the next steps to connect the eyetracker? I checked the settings and eye tracker device, but the list still doesn’t contain the Tobbi eye tracker.

I found the GitHub document(GitHub - psychopy/psychopy-eyetracker-tobii: Extension for PsychoPy which adds support for Tobii eyetrackers), does it mean I don’t need to select eye-tracker in the Settings?
Once the package is installed, PsychoPy will automatically load it when started and the psychopy.iohub.devices.eyetracker.hw.tobii namespace will contain the loaded objects.
