The present disclosure provides a method and device for filtering sensor data. Signals from an array of sensor pixels are received and checked for changes in pixel values. Motion is detected based on the changes in pixel values, and motion output signals are transmitted to a processing station. If the sum of correlated changes in pixel values across a predetermined field of view exceeds a predetermined value, indicating sensor jitter, the motion output signals are suppressed. If a sum of motion values within a defined subsection of the field of view exceeds a predetermined threshold, indicating the presence of a large object of no interest, the motion output signals are suppressed for that subsection.
