Founded in 2005 and headquartered in Copenhagen, Denmark with offices in Boston, Singapore, Berlin, and Sydney, iMotions is a provider of one of the world’s leading platforms for monitoring and analyzing the drivers of human behavior. iMotions partners with over 20 leading biosensor companies that support and use the software platform’s solutions.

iMotions solutions are science-based, and multiple academia uses the platform to progress users’ research on human behavior. Backed by world-class subject matter experts, iMotions developed its multimodal and cross-platform software solution over the last 17 years. The company refined its holistic approach to understanding and researching human behavior, continuously building its technology and platform to bridge industry gaps.

In 2021, iMotions was purchased by Smart Eye A/S and became part of the Smart Eye Group.


The iMotions software is a modular system, with a central hub upon which a variety of biosensors and their corresponding modules can be integrated. This multi-modal approach was designed to streamline research projects, which largely had to rely on recording and analyzing the input from each biometric hardware device separately.

In 2021 iMotions launched a browser and cloud-based service which allows researchers to utilize the internet for global data collection. With the new Online Data Collection (ODC) module, researchers gather eye tracking and facial expression analysis data from participants’ own browsers and web cameras.


iMotions partners with a range of hardware and software developers including: Affectiva (iMotions is currently the only software developer that integrates with Affectiva’s AFFDEX SDK), Shimmer, BIOPAC, Varjo, Empatica, Viewpointsystem, Argus Science, and more.
