[open] Using PyGaze for a different eye tracker brand

edited December 2015 in PyGaze

Hello,
I am using the MyGaze eye tracker system. When I check the documentation of PyGaze I can not find this bran name in the list. Would you please let me know if there is any way that I use this library for this device.
Or, can you please help me to find any other source code that can be used for extracting the information of eye movements, ... (The information that I can get from the device SDK is for position and time).
Thank you for you help.

    Hi,

    PyGaze doesn't support MyGaze—despite an uncanny name resemblance! I had actually never heard of MyGaze before.

    What exactly do you want to do? It sounds like you're mostly interested in extracting saccade and fixation events from eye-position samples. Is that right? Or do you need PyGaze to set up an experiment (which is how it's usually used)?

    Cheers,
    Sebastiaan

    There's much bigger issues in the world, I know. But I first have to take care of the world I know.

    Thank you for your reply.
    Yes, Actually I need to start an experiment. (I am working with this system and I want to get the information from the device to analyze the areas that user mostly focused on).
    This device is not very accurate and it's so sensitive to noise. So, I guess I need to do a reliable experiment. Would you please let me know your suggestion?

  • Hi everybody, I am sorry for contributing to 3 years old thread, but I have the same question as parvasaadat. Is nowadays possible to create experiment using MyGaze eye tracker or have you somebody using it with different software like Ogama? Thank you very much for answers.

  • There's still no support for MyGaze in PyGaze, sorry!

    In general, for a tracker to be supported, someone needs to write an extension library to PyGaze. If there is a Python library for an eye tracker (such as with EyeLink and Tobii), this is usually an easy task for anyone with Python programming experience. If there is a general interface, such as with EyeTribe or GazePoint, a more experienced programmer should be able to write a Python wrapper. The same is true if there is a DLL, such as with SMI.

    So, if there is anyone who has access to a MyGaze tracker and experience with Python, they'd be very welcome to write an extension. Just drop me a line, and I'll point you in the right direction, and can provide help where needed.
