short version:

Odrive is a board that allows you to use hobby type BLDC motors with the type of control that you typically get from steppers.

you put an encoder on the output shaft and the odrive will control the BLDC motor to move appropriately.

the odrive can be driven by step/direction signals like a stepper, or you can give it more complex instructions through a text based interface
