It is Deduce Reckoning - a type of navigation. In this type of navigation the next point is decided in terms of angle and the relative distance. DR can be achieved by knowing the current vehicle speed and its direction. But with this system errors are accumulated and thus increases . If one step is wrong then the successive distance are also measured wrongly!!!
