Smoothing algorithm for x & y data

Smoothing algorithm for x & y data.

There is a small amount of jitter in the x and y data positions when digitizing video motion. For small length scales and/or small image sensor size, that jitter is amplified when calculating the velocity and acceleration. This is especially noticeable in the acceleration data, and creates significant noise effects.
