About us

Aldenhoven Testing Center (ATC) is a state-of-the art interdisciplinary testing center for mobility. It is operated by ATC – Aldenhoven Testing Center of RWTH Aachen University GmbH, a joint venture of Düren county and RWTH Aachen University. Since 2009, ATC is built and extended on the grounds of the former coal mine Emil Mayrisch in Aldenhoven, Germany. It thus represents an example for successful structural change.

All aspects of future challenges and possibilities towards future mobility can be developed and tested at ATC. The installation was financed by capital of RWTH Aachen University as well as public funding of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia and the European Union (European Regional Development Fund). In the meantime, eight track elements are available. The automotiveGATE represents a test and development environment for the future European global navigation satellite system Galileo.

All tracks and facilities can be rented out by interested institutions for their research, development and testing towards mobility. Further extensions, in particular for research and development of connected and autonomous driving are currently planned or built.
