We propose an architecture for and build a prototype of a laboratory-based mobile wireless testbed which uses highly detailed, site-specific channel models to dynamically configure a many-to-many analog channel emulator. Unlike similar systems which have used abstract channel models with few details from the physical environment, we take advantage of commercial ray tracing software and high-performance hardware to make realistic signal power and characteristics predictions in a highly detailed environment. The ray tracing results are used to program a many-to-many analog channel emulator. Using this system we can conveniently, repeatably, and realistically subject real wireless nodes to the effects of mobility. We use our prototype system and a detailed CAD model of the University of Maryland campus to compare field test measurements to measurements made from the same devices in the same physical scenario in the testbed.
