N2 - In this paper, a Virtual Drive Testing (VDT) methodology for a MIMO LTE Vehicle to Infrastructure (V2I) urban scenario is proposed and compared with actual road drive tests.

A 3D ray-tracing channel model is used to predict the spatial and temporal multipath ray components of the radio propagation channel between an LTE BS and the vehicle.

The resulting channels were streamed into a Keysight PropSim F8 channel emulator, which was programmed to communicate with the multi-channel LTE BSs emulator and a Samsung S5 mobile client performing a handover procedure.
