With the emerging 5G solutions for vehicular networking, the spectrum of radio communication technologies also extends into the mmWave band. This is further supported by the recent move towards RADar based COMmunication (RADCOM), i.e., the deeply integrated use of the 77GHz band for communication and sensing. mmWave communication has widely been explored both analytically as well as in experiments, particularly for indoor usage and semi-stationary outdoor scenarios. In this paper, we explore the capabilities of existing simulators for the vehicular use case. We selected WinProp using deterministic ray-tracing techniques and NYUSIM relying on stochastic simulation of the channel. We compare both with a strong focus on simulation accuracy, usability, and computational performance.
