That's the solution.

1) Self driving delivery van brings the package to the street address of the customer.

2) Tethered drone launched from delivery van with package for drop-off at the customer address' perceived front door.

3) Drone takes a picture of delivered package(s) to demonstrate delivery.

Why tethered? Van's power system powers the drone.

Why perceived? The AI has to figure where the front door is. US Postal service requires a front door for a rural free delivery address (while RFD is still offered in USA)
