That's becoming an increasingly difficult thing in vehicles these days. You 
may need to bond together parts of your vehicle to make the antenna work 
(and to get rid of noise -- most trucks I pass on the highway have AWFUL 
noise levels).

That would be a MAJOR technical project, and well outside the scope of this 
forum. First, you would need high speed internet access from your truck!  
If you can accomplish that, you should start researching ham radio remote 
control. There is some very nice software to do this. And there's probably 
a ham radio reflector devoted to it.
