The Vernier sensor block for LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 includes an option for oversampling. Oversampling takes a large number of samples and returns an averaged reading. This is a good feature to use when you need a steady, stable reading. Note that oversampling slows down how quickly readings are returned (about one every half-second), but this is a good option to choose when you are displaying sensor readings on the EV3 window.
