Eye Link 1000 Plus system via SR Research: The EyeLink 1000 Plus Host PC performs real-time eye tracking at 250, 500,1000, or 2000 samples per second while computing true gaze position on the display viewed by the participant. The Host PC also performs on-line detection and analysis of eye-motion events such as saccades, blinks, and fixations. In addition to the sample data, these events are stored in a data file on the Host PC. They can be sent through the Ethernet link to the Display PC with a minimal delay or output as analog signals (if the optional analog/digital I/O card is installed). From the Host PC, the operator performs participant setup, monitors their performance, and can communicate with applications running on a Display PC.
