Pro Pilot forces the driver to keep paying attention, and keep hands on the wheel. Since people are sleeping with Tesla's AP on, I don't think it behaves the same way.
People who sleep with AP are using a defeat device. otherwise they would've been forced to pay attention as well.
Sometimes AP works better than driver himself. It has better reaction for sure, we would have less car incidents if we have only AP cars on the road
I doubt it. AP is driver assistance software. There are still some edge cases that humans are better in, that's why the driver is supposed to stay involved in supervising AP. And as long as humans are still involved in driving, then there will continue to be room for error.

FSD is where the potential to remove human drivers come in. But that software isn't ready for general use yet.
