Aldenhoven Testing Center is a state-of-the art interdisciplinary testing center for mobility. Twelve track elements allow generating almost every real traffic situation. Research, development and validation of automobile systems and functions require a dedicated and closed test field to reach a level of maturity that allows using them on public roads.

The customers of Aldenhoven Testing Center have access, amongst others, to an oval track with a length of 2 km, a vehicle dynamics area with a diameter of 210 m, a hill section with inclinations of up to 30 % as well as a 4-lane Autobahn element. Since 2016, an intersection added up to the facilities, which was extended to a comprehensive urban environment in 2018. Digitalisation plays an important role thanks to the coverage with a simulated signal of the European satellite navigation system Galileo. In addition with Europe’s most advanced mobile communications test field and further wireless networks, we are the ideal place for connected mobility (V2X) research, development and validation.

Aldenhoven Testing Center is a joint venture of Düren county and RWTH Aachen University. It can be rented out by all interested institutions, especially SMEs and start-ups. Since 2009, it is built and extended on the grounds of the former coal mine Emil Mayrisch in Aldenhoven, Germany. Customers comprise vehicle OEMs and suppliers, R&D service providers as well as universities and other research institutions. It is also a popular company event location.
