In general, "telecommand" is allowed. You could use a small radio to control a larger one, thereby using a small 5 watt radio to talk around the world (provided you have a license to do so). You could use telecommand to patch into the phone system and make a telephone call (also perfectly legal), it's called autopatch. Why not telecommand of a car? "Telecommand" is listed as one of the allowed one-way communications. (Identifying with a call sign is not an issue, I can still use the radio like normal). I think the project falls well within the bounds of what amateur radio is there for; it's there to experiment with. I'd still appreciate ideas about the sine wave oscillator.
From §97.111 Authorized transmissions:
(b) In addition to one-way transmissions specifically authorized elsewhere in this Part, an amateur station may transmit the following types of one-way communications:
(1) Brief transmissions necessary to make adjustments to the station;
(2) Brief transmissions necessary to establishing two-way communications with other stations;
