I must of set close to 100000 rivets in my 35 years fixing aircraft. The skin of aircraft vary so much in thickness,curve and complexity of access that no robot can do it. Maybe in the future but not yet.

Or chose to ignore test pilots and systems engineers.

I'd like to see one on the inside and one on the outside bucking a conventional rivet. Blind rivets can be a 1-side operation, but the amount of dexterity it needs is quite high. We have hand-riveters at work, lots of pneumatic ones. It takes a certain feel to get the bigger rivets and studs to pull correctly.

All it has to do is punch a hole in the .040" think skin and a ton of rework comes next. The paperwork alone is a nightmare.
