ODrive Advice for motor and beginers

Hello!

I am recently starting a project, am inexperienced at motor control and would like to use the ODrive to control my motors. I have read that the ODrive is for brushless motors and that an ESC will not work for brushed motors, which is what I currently have. WIll I need to get brushless motors?

Also, any good starting points is very appreciated. Plan on using Jetson Nano.

Thanks!
