The software that allows smartphones to locate themselves is generally accurate only to within a few metres, but UK start-up Naurt claims its software can locate a device to within 20 centimetres

It is possible to improve the accuracy of satellite navigation software so it pinpoints a location on Earth to within tens of centimetres without the need for new hardware, says a UK-based start-up.
Software that handles signals from global navigation satellite systems (GNSS) – such as the US government’s GPS or the EU’s Galileo – is ubiquitous in smartphones and other devices. But it only determines location to within a few metres.
“We have created the world’s first platform that is able …
