Wondering if there are plans/dates for a release of the high-level EyeX SDK for Android? Soon starting a product for Android and would like to avoid building against the low-level Gaze SDK if possible.
Tobii has no concrete plans of building a high-level EyeX SDK for Android in the short term. I know there are others who would be interested in such a library for Android, so there is probably room for some sort of open source project. For Android there are standardized ways to read the window content (for example with an Accessibility Service) and you do not need to care about overlapping windows, so the implementation will most likely be more straight-forward than on Windows.
Good luck with your project! Please let us and the community know how it goes.
Apologies for any inconvenience, however the Gaze SDK introduced many issues and we are working on introducing similar functionality in forthcoming EyeX SDK releases.

[vc_row 0=""][vc_column][vc_column_text 0=""]Are you planning to make your eye Tracker enabled application/game available to many people? We hope so, and for this reason, we have done our best to make it easy for you to distribute your applications and games built using the Tobii SDKs.
When you download a Tobii SDK you agree to an SDK License Agreement that (with a few exceptions) allows you distribute the Tobii client library files necessary to add eye tracking to your application. One limitation is that you may only use the Tobii Core SDK to develop interactive applications. If you want to develop software for analytical purposes, post processing or aggregation of eye tracking data across multiple users, please Contact Tobii Pro. Also, you may not use the SDK to develop software that is used in so-called high-risk use applications.
We at Tobii also want to do our best to help you reach as many people as possible with your application, and help you to commercialize it if that is your goal. Contact us if you want to know more about what the opportunities will be for you during the current year, and how we expect the market for eye tracking in consumer electronics to evolve.
