The performance of wireless communication systems is fundamentally determined by the properties of the underlying wireless communication channel. Vehicular communication channels exhibit time-variant multi-path propagation with non-stationary channel statistics. Thus, channel emulation tools for the reproducible test of wireless communication systems are urgently needed to enable the development of ultra-reliable low-latency communication links. In this paper we validate the vehicle-in-the-loop (ViL) test of vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communication links by means of time-variant channel emulation. The validation is performed by comparing the received signal strength indicator (RSSI) and packet error rate (PER) of measurements on a proving ground with the RSSI and PER obtained from ViL tests. For the ViL tests, the wireless communication channel is emulated using a geometry-based stochastic channel model, which is updated in real-time, dependent on the position and velocity of the vehicles. We collect results of different scenarios on the proving ground and from ViL tests. The results show an qualitative match between ViL test and measurement on the proving ground. An exact quantitative match can be obtained with the calibration parameters from the measurements.
