New: Enabling eye tracking on all devices
Technological advancements in mobile cameras and machine learning algorithms are enabling new ways of conducting eye tracking studies on mobile devices, without requiring any additional hardware or app installation. At Tobii Pro, we’ve used these advancements to make the leap to mobile capability. Our newest solution for Sticky enables wide-scale eye tracking studies that can be completed directly through a user’s handheld device.

Webcam eye tracking and emotion analysis
For a fraction of the cost of traditional in-person research, the online platform Sticky by Tobii Pro enables large-scale quantitative eye tracking research and emotion recognition as a self-service. By tracking users’ eye movements on their mobile or computer, market researchers can gain valuable visual and emotional data on the impact and performance of existing or new designs and placements, for example, in advertising and packaging research. The platform is integrated with online survey engines and panel companies with global reach, enabling a distributed data collection setup and with a quick turnaround time.
How online eye tracking works
Designing your study
Sticky is a cloud-based platform, allowing you to log in and conduct your research wherever you are. To set up a study, you can choose one of the pre-designed experiment templates including screener questions, instructions, media placeholders, and common survey questions. You can upload both images, such as ad or package designs, and videos as media. Our templates guide and speed up your preparations, reducing setup time to less than 10 minutes. If you need maximum flexibility, you may of course create your own experiment.
Launching your experiment
Through Sticky by Tobii Pro, you can access panels for quantitative sample sizes worldwide. Send the study to your desired participants, who will be able to participate through their web browser at home or from anywhere they are available and feel more comfortable, using the camera on their own mobile devices, no plug-ins or downloads required. Simple instructions, a short but effective calibration and advanced algorithms guarantee high data quality. Depending on your demographics and sample size, fielding can be as quick as 24hrs.
Emotion analysis through facial recognition
Which emotions does your communication evoke and why? The automatic facial coding capability in Sticky by Tobii Pro helps to answer these critical questions . The webcam detects the participant’s facial expressions while they watch your media and Sticky returns the probability distribution of each of the six universal emotions. Using emotion analysis in conjunction with eye tracking uncovers not just what people are feeling towards your communication, but exactly what they are looking at on the screen when they feel that emotion. Only this way you get accurate knowledge if the story elements in your ad perform as intended and what might need changing.
When fielding is concluded, your online eye tracking results are presented as impactful visualizations, for example gaze plots or heat maps on your media, and data points like percentage seen or time viewed. Results from the emotion recognition are shown as intensity graphs for all six universal emotions as well as valence and mood graphs. Our guidance helps you turn the analytical results into actionable insights and recommendations, so you know which design option to choose going forward. Complimentary report templates make it easy for you to share those insights with your stakeholders or clients.
