As Chris said, the carrot is a simple way for guidance/navigation.
Think of a stick with a carrot that you hold in front of your donkey/horse to get it to walk in the direction you desire.
You set a point at a defined distance from your current position in the direction which your robot should fly/drive to (e.g. towards your next waypoint).

Cheers, Felix
