I am currently working on a robot which use a define path eg, a drawn path from point a to point b. Is there a way to make it to navigate autonomously.

This is a very broad question. There are many ways to get your robot to navigate through from point a to point b, although you have to specify what kind of robot and what sensors you have on it so that someone could come up with a viable suggestion.

@gambit: could I please ask you to try and search the site for this? Use Google, and add to your query. There are countless duplicates of this question.

My robot is running on differential drive, with lidar sensor for localisation.

The short answer is you want to use the ROS nav stack. As @gvdhoorn mentioned this is a broad topic, and is covered elsewhere. I'd start with the Tutorials and work your way up to the nav stack.
