Re: Neither.

Even with multiple sensor you can have totally unreliable data, and the auto system must give up and tell pilot they have to fly the plane.

If it keeps on taking control while fed unreliable data it really doesn't matter how many sensor there are.

Higher redundancy just ensures it takes more than one simple failure before the automatic system must be disabled.
