Kokomo Auto World helps raise money for local humane society

Indiana dealership runs Facebook campaign for Kokomo Humane Society funding

KOKOMO, Ind., Aug. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The focus of any car dealership is selling cars; however, some dealers go beyond their call of duty by becoming important assets to the community. Kokomo Auto World has shown its commitment to the Kokomo community lately through a number of social campaigns, giveaways and partnerships. Among those partnerships is the ongoing one between Kokomo Auto World and the Kokomo Humane Society.

Through a social campaign that began this week, Kokomo Auto World is donating $1 to the Kokomo Humane Society for every new Like on its Facebook page. With a $250 goal, this is an opportunity for Kokomo residents to raise money for the humane society without making a financial contribution.

The partnership between the dealership and the humane society started about a month ago when the Kokomo Humane Society purchased its new Ford Transit animal transport van from Kokomo Auto World, prior to the sale of the Ford franchise. The van was wrapped with a custom design funded by Hutson Electric that beautifully encapsulates the mission of the Kokomo Humane Society. Although the humane society received a $17,000 grant from the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, it didn't cover the entire cost of the new van.

At the dealership, Kokomo Auto World has been giving away Paws as a fun way of saying thank you for contributions to the Kokomo Humane Society.

For more information about the campaign, visit the Kokomo Auto World Facebook page or head to www.kokomoautoworld.com. The dealership can be reached by phone at 765-453-4111.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
