Data averaging

You can average both the channels and data blocks that are plotted in your graphs. By default, there is no averaging, so it is set as All. You can decide between different types of averaging, such as mean, maximum, etc.

An interesting option is Norm, which allows to easily show the vector norm of X, Y and Z directions of a single sensor.
