Navigation is a very important aspect of any mobile robot. A robot that can autonomously navigate its own path is always desired for. New and employable technologies pertaining to navigation is the need of the hour. This paper sheds light on a rather simplistic and basic approach to navigation making use of a simple Algorithm. This Algorithm helps the robot to memorize the path taken and then use this memory to navigate the same path autonomously. Such an algorithm is very applicable in situations where a low cost robot is to be built with high accuracy for performing repetitive actions,for instance a floor cleaning robot or a surveillance robot
