Newbie Remote Control Car

Hoping to get direction here to get started.
Use a Pi 4 to do the car computer.
Need motion and vision (live camera).
Want autonomous control like bluetooth or other. Not WiFi !
I want to use outdoors in the field.
What options are available ?
Want to use an Android tablet for vision and control.
What tablet features do I need to look for ?
Are there kits or detailed instruction available.
Links please.
Thank you !

If not, then joining a local club is probably a good start.

Try your local friendly hobby store if you still have 'em in CA - they're a vanishing form of retail in the UK.
Failing that, a web search for "California RC Car Racing" should find you some contacts - DuckDuckGo worked for me.
Best to visit an RC model car meet or a specialist hobby shop and ask there: I'm a free flight model flyer and sailplane pilot who once dabbled in slotcar racing so you already know everything I ever knew about model cars.
OTOH, it you decide to use a RaspberryPi Zero or Pico as the base for a model car control system, then this is the place to come.

several online stores sell kits. Building a kit will give you experience and ideas for your own design.
