‘A Lot of Hoped-for Automation Was Counterproductive’: Elon Musk

A lot of the hoped-for automation was counterproductive. It’s not like we knew it would be bad, because why would we buy a ticket to hell? We don’t actually want to go for hell. We just didn’t realize it was a ticket to hell. We thought it would be good, but it was not good.
That applies to a great deal of the automation. A whole bunch of the robots are turned off, and it was reverted to a manual station because the robots kept faulting out. When the robot faults out—like the vision system can’t figure out how to put the object in—then you’ve got to reset the system. You’ve got to manually seat the components. It stops the whole production line while you sort out why the robot faults out.
