GPS module will needs to be bought.

GPS usually have serial port interfaces , so you will read the current position on them and where you have to go then take actions :).

It will be easy to discuss about the interface, if you could tell us more about the gps chip and the microcontroller you are using in the robot. As far as I know, you can find the gps chip which sends its output at serial port. So, you can connect this output to the receiving port of microcontroller you are using in robot. I hope it'll help you.

for the project we are using an ATMega 16.
we haven't bought a gps module.
but then, the output of gps is in latitude and longitude isn't it?
the problem comes when we are working in a small area.
and also...is it possible for us to use the navigators that come with gps technology for this project?
