Introducing Aurora 250 and Expansion Box

With the addition of Aurora to the Smart Eye suite of products came a capability for a more accurate and user friendly research experience. Aurora brought portability, versatility and superior performance, all while collaborating with other sensors and bio-measurement systems. 

We are excited to add even deeper insights to our already small package. Today we introduce the Aurora 250 and its companion expansion box. 

Aurora 250 is an exciting new enhancement to our high-performing Auroras, especially for research studies that involve small eye movements. Customers that already have an Aurora can now upgrade it from 60 or 120 Hz frame rate to 120Hz or 250Hz with a simple software upgrade, meaning no need to replace the hardware. This increased frame rate of 250 Hz allows research groups to study eye movements in more depth, as it more accurately detects the start and end point of fixations and saccades. This is important in many research studies where short saccades are common. The increased frame rate also reduces the latency of the eye tracker output, or the time from when the actual eye movement occurs to when the data is calculated and output generated from the eye tracker. This low latency is a critical component in interactive psychology research such as gaze contingency research where what is being displayed on the screen depends on eye movements of the subject. 

Timing accuracy is vital in the field of neuroscience and psychology research. To perfect that, in addition to the frame rate enhancement of Aurora, we are pleased to introduce the Aurora Expansion Box. This additional hardware allows the Aurora to receive 8-bit markers. These markers are time stamped within the Aurora with an accuracy of 20 µs, with respect to the eye tracker data, and can thus be used to accurately synchronize the eye tracker data output with other sensors such as EEG.

Technical Specs Highlights:

  • 8-bit markers
  • Millisecond accuracy
  • The Expansion Box makes the Aurora Compatible with Chronos response pad of Psychology Software Tools, and StimTracker from Cedrus

With the release of Aurora 250hz and its expansion box, Smart Eye is glad to take another step towards meeting the requirements of the researchers within neuroscience and psychology for eye tracking solutions.

Smart Eye Automotive Interior Sensing Named CES 2022 Innovation Awards Honoree

The company’s groundbreaking Automotive Interior Sensing solution combines driver monitoring and cabin monitoring to improve road safety and mobility experiences.

Gothenburg, Sweden – January 4, 2022 – Smart Eye, the global leader in Human Insight AI, today announced that it has been named a CES® 2022 Innovation Awards Honoree for Smart Eye Automotive Interior Sensing. The recognition comes ahead of CES 2022, happening Jan. 5-7 in Las Vegas, NV and digitally.

Smart Eye Automotive Interior Sensing combines the company’s industry-leading driver monitoring system (DMS) with cabin monitoring to provide deep, human-centric insight into what is happening inside a vehicle. The system understands the state of the driver, the cabin and the backseat passengers, by detecting eye gaze, head movement, body posture, occupancy, activities, children, pets and objects. Powered by Affectiva’s Emotion AI, it also captures nuanced emotions, reactions and facial expressions. In turn, Smart Eye enables OEMs and Tier 1s to build next generation vehicles that improve road safety by understanding dangerous driving behavior, and unlock features and services that enhance wellness, comfort and entertainment.

Smart Eye Automotive Interior Sensing is a multi-modal solution built with computer vision, machine learning and massive amounts of real-world automotive data. With a flexible camera position using the latest optical RGB and IR sensors, the system runs in real time on low-power embedded systems.

“We’re so excited to receive this recognition of our work in Interior Sensing,” said Martin Krantz, Founder and CEO of Smart Eye. “For years, Smart Eye has held a definitive leadership position in the driver monitoring system (DMS) market. Now, we are expanding our view beyond just the driver, to monitor the full cabin, to understand what is happening inside a vehicle. The industry is rapidly adopting these multi-modal Interior Sensing solutions, in response to evolving requirements for advanced safety features and next-generation mobility experiences.

Introducing: Smart Eye Pro 9.3

120 Hz with unparalleled flexibility

Size matters; at least when it comes to the instruments you bring into complex research environments. With its small footprint, Smart Eye Pro dx is the perfect eye tracker for situations that require a system that is as adaptable as it is advanced.

Now, this unparalleled flexibility is combined with the accuracy and reduced delay of a higher sampling rate – resulting in Smart Eye Pro 9.3 with 120 Hz.

Thanks to its compact size, Smart Eye Pro 9.3 is the 120 Hz solution that gives you the best of both worlds. Developed for the customers who have requested more data, better saccade detection, and better eyelid detection, but without compromising on the flexibility or high resolution of the dx camera.

Watch our sales engineer Sebastian Johansson demonstrate and explain the new features and improvements of Smart Eye Pro 9.3:  

The new features of Smart Eye Pro 9.3 include:

  • 120 Hz eye tracking with the smaller, non-intrusive Dx camera
  • More robust and accurate gaze tracking
  • Improved video recording performance and robustness
  • Reduced processor load for AI-X and Aurora cameras
  • Added RPC methods for toggling between adult or infant tracking
  • Upgraded to Basler Pylon 6.2.0
