Given goal point coordinates, is it possible for the robot to move to goal without map, global_plan. By just using /odom data?

To go from point 1 to point 2, something has to generate a path, even if its a straight line. That can be thought of like a global planner.

If you're just talking about dead reckoning (if that doesnt sound familiar, google it) I think that's what you want. Your robot is in some position, go to some position relative to the starting position. There will be drift accumulating from noise/slip but for short distances this is ok.
