Auto Navigation

My idea for a project is a robot car that can navigate simple mazes. Basically, you would give it the coordinates of the desired destination relative to its starting point, and it would find it. It would have a series of distance sensors all around it, allowing it to detect walls. After encountering a barrier, it would move parallel to barrier in both ways (if necessary) until it found an opening, and then it would move through and resume its quest. The robot would either have 2 DC motors with encoders on them or 2 stepper motors, allowing it to move forward, backward, and turn in place via 4 wheels. An LCD screen and some way to input the coordinates would be necessary as well. Ideally, there would be some sort of tracking device used so that the robot would just try to find the device rather than deal with input coordinates
