Obviously automated cars are safer than normal cars because they are normal cars with sensors geared around not crashing, but it would be nice to have a standard metric for qualifying how much safer.

@wilkie That's not a great argument because normal cars also have sensors geared around not crashing (the senses of the driver), so it depends on the level of automation

Cars that augment the drivers are definitely safer (like non-self driving cars with automatic braking), but if you're removing the driver, you are throwing away a bunch of could-be-better sensors and you have to replace them with something at least as safe.
