    I tried to get this implementation up and running with my EyeX. The EyeX demo ran fine, and it was tracking my eyes. When the ‘init’ command was run, it was an unsuccessful read:

    Warning: Unsuccessful read: The specified amount of data was not returned within the Timeout period.
    Attempted to access DATA(1); index out of bounds because numel(DATA)=0.

    Any idea how I should try to address this?

    Also, I really need data in real time for what I want to do. Is Matlab not the way to go?

It looks like Matlab is not able to get access to the EyeX. It happens if there are some routens running, other than the EyeX Engine, so check it. For instance, sometimes you have a small icon representing the tracked eyes, in the central lower part of the screen. If that is running, you won’t get acces to EyeX from Matlab.

Hope it helps….
