We have plans to set up an eye tracking station within our test environment.

  • What should I pay attention to when buying an eye tracker? Which characteristics are particularly important for usability testing?
  • Is there some standard equipment or software for this?

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Sorry, but questions requesting recommendations for tools / books / software / apps / papers etc. would fall into the shopping request category and aren't really suitable to a Q&A website. The reason for this is that there is no one correct answer, and such recommended items would soon be updated and replaced with newer / better versions making the best answers redundant. Therefore you're better off visiting our Chat site for such discussions, they're not really suitable for this main site I'm afraid. – JonW Jul 10 '13 at 7:40
@risaj I edited your question to bring it in line with the rules of the site, please let us know if that's OK/still interesting for you. – Gala Jul 10 '13 at 8:13
@GaëlLaurans Thank you for fixing. Yes that's ok. – rlsaj Jul 11 '13 at 0:08

In my experience with clients and agencies, in Europe, Spain particularly, Tobii hardware is the most used and well known, but I wouldn't say it's an "standard".

Any well known brand will provide you with the same standard features. I would recommend to look at the price tag and, if you can, wait for reseller offers: usually when a new hardware is released the old one is sold more affordable.
