Integrating eye-tracking with Tobii eye-tracker

OS (e.g. Win10): Win7
PsychoPy version (e.g. 1.84.x): v.3.1.2
Standard Standalone? (y/n) Yes
What are you trying to achieve?:
I guess this is a broad question but hoping to be pointed in the right direction from others experiences.

I’m trying to now integrate eye-tracking into an existing PsychoPy Builder script that I’ve put together. We use a Tobii X3-120 eye-tracker in our lab on a Win7 system. In the past, I’ve always created my eye-tracking experimenters using E-Prime with Tobii commands. I’m now in the process of moving over to PsychoPy (hopefully forevermore!)

However, I’m struggled to figure out the best way to get started as there seem to be lots of different ways to approach this. I’m still a beginner coder and trying to figure out which method would work best for me.

I have a copy of the psychopy book and had begun working from that. However, from reading different online posts and topics here on the forum it seems there are other ways to approach this. For example:

  1. The psychopy book chapter on eye tracking
  2. Aleksander Nitka’s guide on using Tobii Eye Trackers with PsychoPy Builder
    https://github.com/aleksandernitka/EyeTracking_Tobii_PsychoPy_IOHUB
  3. Hiroyuki Sogo’s psychopy_tobii_controller module
    https://github.com/hsogo/psychopy_tobii_controller
  4. Python for eye-tracking workshop with (Sol Simpson, Michael MacAskill and Jon Peirce) materials
    http://www.psychopy.org/resources/resources.html

For those who use Tobii eye-trackers or perhaps have also recently moved from E-Prime to PsychoPy - what would you recommend? Whilst I see similarities across all guides, they all seem to vary slightly!

Hello all. :wave:

Just another attempt to see if there is anyone who would be willing to share their recommendations/experiences of using the above resources to integrate Tobii eye-tracking into Builder?

Many thanks in advance :grin:
