Tobii and EyeTech enters technology partnership
Eye tracking company Tobii and EyeTech Digital Systems have entered into a royalty-bearing technology partnership/license agreement giving EyeTech access to Tobii’s patented Region-of-Interest technology.
Through the license EyeTech becomes the second licensee to receive the ability to use Tobii’s proprietary Region-of-Interest technology. “Tobii strives for broader adoption of eye tracking, and through licensing we can let more people become aware of and experience the revolutionary benefits of this technology. This arrangement reinforces Tobii’s leading Intellectual Property position in the space of eye tracking, and we look forward to a strong relationship with EyeTech and other licensees”, said Henrik Eskilsson, CEO of Tobii. “By licensing the Region-of-Interest technology, EyeTech gains greater capability, particularly where a combination of high speed and large head box are needed. We think the agreement will be beneficial to both companies and may pave the way for additional technology sharing”, said Robert Chappell, CEO of EyeTech Digital Systems.
