RC Golf Cart?

Hi all,

I am on a team for my university which has been tasked with making an autonomous car. We are starting with a golf cart and I am in charge of making it remote controlled.

I have prior experience in RC cars but I am unsure as to how I can both program and run a full scale vehicle.

For steering I was thinking of using a stepper motor attached to the steering column and for throttle I was going to use a linear actuator attached to the back of the gas pedal.

My issue is this: I don't know how to integrate these parts into a typical RC setup. Any ideas? Does anything that applies to large RC cars such as 1:4 scale also apply here?

Thanks for any help given!
