Tobii announces it has signed an agreement with a leading virtual reality (VR) headset manufacturer to integrate its eye tracking technology into an upcoming VR headset.

“We have made great efforts in adapting our world-leading eye-tracking technology for VR together with key customers and partners, and it’s of course very exciting to be able to announce this agreement. It is an important milestone for Tobii to establish eye tracking as a foundational VR technology,” says Henrik Eskilsson, CEO of Sweden-headquartered Tobii, in a media release.

The scope of delivery includes the Tobii EyeChip and licenses to Tobii’s VR4 system design, IP and software. There are no binding volume commitments. Deliveries are expected to start in 2019.

Tobii expects that a large share of future VR headsets will include integrated eye tracking, the release continues.
