Claim of US Patent No. 9,355,546

1. An apparatus for analyzing a concentration level of a driver, the apparatus comprising:
a line of sight (LOS) dispersion analyzer configured to analyze quantitative data associated with a time at which an LOS of
a driver is dispersed and a time at which the LOS of the driver is focused;

a reaction speed analyzer configured to analyze a reaction speed of a human machine interface (HMI) when a command based on
device input information, voice information, and gesture information is input; and

an LOS dispersion evaluator configured to evaluate a degree of LOS dispersion of the driver based on the quantitative data
and a reaction speed of a user interface (UI) of the HMI;

wherein the LOS dispersion analyzer is configured to quantify, based on driving information and driving conditions displayed
on a display, the time at which the LOS of the driver is focused and a reaction speed of recognition time.
