Eye tracking is a way of measuring attention, by recording what people look at and how long they look at it for.
It’s a great way of understanding what stands out to people, and how that influences their behaviour. It can be a valuable tool for a range of different research needs, such as shopper, packaging, advertising, and UX.
If you’d like to know more about eye tracking and how to use it, check out our Introduction to Eye Tracking.
If you’re now ready to find a platform for your own eye tracking studies, then you’ve come to the right place.
Here are our top 15 platforms.
Lumen are attention technologists who use eye tracking and other behavioural research techniques to understand what really drives attention to advertising, point of sale and packaging.
Their proprietary software turns your computer or mobile’s webcam into an accurate and stable eye tracking camera. This means they can conduct insightful attention studies at scale and speed anywhere in the world, and amongst any audience.
Lumen combine eye tracking technology with facial coding and implicit response time techniques to produce rich and robust recommendations that lead to confident decision-making and increased sales.
They have pioneered the use of ‘in context’ testing for everything from print, TV and digital media, and innovative solutions in testing OOH and POS using Hollywood-style video special effects technology.
Lumen offer a range of tools including digital / social media ad optimisation, TV ad pre-testing and tracking, OOH ad testing, POS material testing, packaging shelf tests and design pre-tests, and UX and user design.
They work directly with client insight teams for advertisers, publishers and retailers, but also work in partnership with research agencies, licencing technology or working in deeper collaborative partnerships.

Element Human is an easy-to-use customer understanding platform that uses a range of different tools, including eye tracking.
To measure how people engage with certain environments, Element Human uses a number of traditional and proprietary tools like surveys, eye-tracking, and emotion recognition to understand attention, emotion, perception and intent to behave. This provides you with fast, reliable, and emotional market knowledge.
The consent-based platform enables everyday devices to safely capture and respond to the emotional, memory and thought drivers of human behaviour as people interact with digital experiences.
You can watch a demo from Element Human here. You can also read their ebook “Facial and Emotion Recognition: What’s the difference?”
