I want to put together a drive-by-wire system, and whilst I studied for some time the basics of it I am still a little bit confused as to where to start or even what components I should buy.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, as I am new to this!
Thank you for your time!

So you need a motor to move to a specified position.
You could use a stepper motor for that. This will move a number of steps depending on the pulses fed to it.
You could use a standard brushed DC motor with some kind of position sensor.
You could use a radio control servo which is a DC motor with position feedback built in which wll move to a position determined by the width of a pulse sent to it.
