Hello, guys, I need your help in moving a robot from one point to another point, problem description is as follows:

suppose my robot is at the initial position(x1, y1) and I want to move from that position to some final position (x2, y2) how can I achieve that?

by the way, I have arlo robot with a propeller board.

Now turn 90 degrees, and repeat above for y1 and y2.

Of course you’ll have to code this, but it’s the basics.
