Motordriver MD25 interfacing with ROS

Hey! I'm new to ROS and try to get into it. I did the whole beginners tutorial to get an overview.

I have a lot of hardware components for my robot here that I would like to work with. But I don't now how to communicate to them via ROS. Especially the motor drivers MD25 from Devantech. Is there already a node to communicate with them? Or a package that I can modify? Is the ros_control package a way to do it? The drivers are talking through I2C-bus. As a first step I would like to use the turtlebot_teleop package to "steer" the robot.

My ROS is running on a Raspberry 3 with Ubuntu Mate 16.04.

Thank you for all responses! I really need your help.

Henning

For this specifically a quick Google turned up wiki/Robots/Mecanumbot, which seems to use the MD25. The related joshvillbrandt/mecanumbot-ros-pkg repository seems to contain quite a few mentions of MD25 in the sources.

It doesn't have a node for the MD25 per se. It would seem to be a rosserial <-> arduino kind of setup.
