We present a novel, systematic procedure for smoothing non-smooth dynamical systems. In particular we introduce the Moving Average Transformation which can be thought of as a change of variables which transforms discontinuous systems into \emph{dynamically equivalent} continuous systems and continuous but non-differentiable systems into dynamically equivalent differentiable systems. This smoothing gives us a new way to compute the stability properties of a non-smooth systems and provides a new theoretical link between smooth and non-smooth systems. The dynamics and algebraic structure of systems obtained by transforming typical non-smooth systems are investigated.
