AndroidAPS is an open source app used by people with diabetes as a so-called closed-loop system that automatically adjusts insulin delivery based on the data retrieved from a glucose sensor and insulin pump. People previously uploaded data from AndroidAPS to Open Humans manually, or with Nightscout Data Transfer. However, since many people are not using Nightscout, this is burdensome. The AndroidAPS Uploader allows users to directly upload all data from within AndroidAPS itself and reduces the burden of sharing/donating data this way.
It works by gathering all the new and changed database entries since the last upload, serializing them to JSON objects and zipping them along with some basic device information. It is designed not to reveal any private information such as passwords. The serial number of the user’s insulin pump is uploaded as a SHA256 checksum for deduplicating data. Data is uploaded directly to Open Humans without any intermediate servers to avoid potential security breaches at the server end and having to expend effort on maintenance.
We will only message users if some new security concerns appear.
This project will be used as a data source with the OpenAPS Data Commons.
