WASHINGTON, April 25, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Following is the daily "Profile America" feature from the U.S. Census Bureau:
FIRST LICENSE PLATES
Profile America — Friday, April 25th. Many automobile license plates proclaim glories of the issuing states; others spell out something dear to the drivers but indecipherable to anyone else. Those plates and the basic ones handed out by motor vehicle departments are requirements to drive on public roads. New York was the first state to require license plates on motor vehicles on this date in 1901. At the time, there were just under 15,000 sputtering automobiles in the entire country, traveling over muddy, rudimentary roads without a license for the driver or the automobile. Now, there are nearly a quarter-billion cars, trucks, and buses in the nation, and all sporting license plates. Decorative frames for license plates are a niche product in America's 38,000 auto parts and accessories stores. You can find more facts about America from the U.S. Census Bureau,online at www.census.gov.

In addition, each IoT product is comprised of (at least) three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the back-end service, and the mobile application for the end user’s controls.
