Getting the makerverse 2 channel motor driver to work on the raspberry pi 5


I have two Makerverse motor drivers (2 channel) that I am trying to get working on the raspberry pi 5. I want to use these drivers to control 4 basic hobby motors with omni/mecanum wheels.

Is this an adequate way of getting the job done, or should I look at a different motor driver module?

If it can work, how do I get the makerverse library to work on the raspberry pi?
I believe that getting the makerverse library for the motor driver onto the rasp pi would be a bit different then the tutorial on this site, of which shows how to do it on the pico.

Any assistance is very much appreciated.

Thank you very much.

This motor driver is just a simple dual H-bridge for which there are many implementations for Raspberry Pi
eg: the RPi foundation’s robot buggy guide

The gotcha to look out for is that the Makerverse Motor Driver has In1/In2 mode and PWM/Direction mode which is selectable by a jumper.

By default it is set up as PWM/Direction mode
