Some FYI on this project.

I'm currently waiting on KeyeStudio, the supplier of this RobotTank kit, to come off their Chinese New Years holiday and provide us with the basic "demo" Arduino sketches for this, instead of the Mixly graphical "code" they provide.

There are a few reasons for this. First, I'm personally not into graphical programming (like Mixly, which seem like a child's programming toy to me) and strongly prefer the C++ like Arduino IDE coding. Second, when I downloaded the mixly archive file provided by KeyeStudio, my Avast anti-virus scanner complains the archive contains some malware; and I'm just too busy to debug and "de-virus" the KeyeStudio Mixly archive.

KeyeStudio has kindly informed me they would get me the actual Arduino demo sketches for this robot kit after the Chinese New Years holiday is past, sometimes in February. I was going to make a video on the "virus alert" when unarchiving the mixly archive from KeyeStudio, but I've just been busy and making a "look at this virus alert" video for a supplier has not been a priority here. KeyeStudio was not satisfied with my photos of the virus alert(s) and requested a video!

I imagine, however, I'll start coding this robot long before I get the demo Ardunio sketches from KeyeStudio, but let's see what happens. My plan is to go beyond the kit and add some other sensors plus some other command and control boards. Let's see how long this kit can hold our attention. We have been playing with the kit little by little, not in a hurry, since we are waiting on supplier to get us the Arduino demo sketches before diving too far into this.

More later as we progress......

Note: The spelling is correct. It is KeyeStudio, not KeyStudio.

p11-kit - Tool for operating on configured PKCS#11 modules SYNOPSIS
p11-kit list-modules p11-kit extract --filter=<what> --format=<type> /path/to/destination DESCRIPTION
p11-kit is a command line tool that can be used to perform operations on PKCS#11 modules configured on the system. See the various sub commands below. The following global options can be used: -v, --verbose Run in verbose mode with debug output. -q, --quiet Run in quiet mode without warning or failure messages. LIST MODULES
List system configured PKCS#11 modules. $ p11-kit list-modules The modules, information about them and the tokens present in the PKCS#11 modules will be displayed. EXTRACT
Extract certificates from configured PKCS#11 modules. $ p11-kit extract --format=x509-directory --filter=ca-anchors /path/to/directory You can specify the following options to control what to extract. The --filter and --format arguments should be specified. By default this command will not overwrite the destination file or directory. --comment Add identifying comments to PEM bundle output files before each certificate. --filter=<what> Specifies what certificates to extract. You can specify the following values: ca-anchors Certificate anchors (default) trust-policy Anchors and blacklist blacklist Blacklisted certificates certificates All certificates pkcs11:object=xx A PKCS#11 URI If an output format is chosen that cannot support type what has been specified by the filter, a message will be printed. None of the available formats support storage of blacklist entries that do not contain a full certificate. Thus any certificates blacklisted by their issuer and serial number alone, are not included in the extracted blacklist. --format=<type> The format of the destination file or directory. You can specify one of the following values: x509-file DER X.509 certificate file x509-directory directory of X.509 certificates pem-bundle File containing one or more certificate PEM blocks pem-directory Directory PEM files each containing one certifiacte openssl-bundle OpenSSL specific PEM bundle of certificates openssl-directory Directory of OpenSSL specific PEM files java-cacerts Java keystore 'cacerts' certificate bundle --overwrite Overwrite output file or directory. --purpose=<usage> Limit to certificates usable for the given purpose You can specify one of the following values: server-auth For authenticating servers client-auth For authenticating clients email For email protection code-signing For authenticated signed code An arbitrary purpose OID EXTRACT TRUST
Extract standard trust information files. $ p11-kit extract-trust OpenSSL, GnuTLS and Java cannot currently read trust information directly from the trust policy module. This command extracts trust information such as certificate anchors for use by these libraries. What this command does, and where it extracts the files is distribution or site specific. Packagers or administrators are expected customize this command. BUGS
Please send bug reports to either the distribution bug tracker or the upstream bug tracker at SEE ALSO
