Using Roboteq Motor Controller instead of Arduino/Drive Combo

I am planning on using a prebuilt robotics base 4 wheeled Mecanum wheels; which includes 2 Roboteq SDC2160 motor controllers. Goal is to perform autonomous navigation.

Since these controllers have boards built in, I believe I can bypass the need for a Arduino/Teensy to send encoder data and receive commands.

Any best ideas on how to implement this with ROS packages? I have been trying to use Linorobot ( but not sure how to adapt that code for just the motor controllers.

Using NVIDIA Jetson Nano.

Hello, I hope that you finished your robot, I just got that SDC2160 driver, and I want to use it in a project I'm working on, can you tell me where did you find a ROS driver for it, cause all I found was the roboteq_diff_driver which I'm already using with a different model and I don't want the differential driver anyway
