If the two variables have the same number of elements, just subtract one from the other.

For example:

speed_error = reference - measured

That will give the error at each element of each vector.

If you want to get a single parameter with respect to the ‘speed_error’ vector, one option is to use the rms function to get the RMS error. To get the mean squared error, simply square the RMS result.

There are other options as well. The sum squared error is simply:

sum_squared_error = sum(speed_error.^2)

.
