Future (possible) Pump Drivers

This is list of some Pumps floating around there, and status of support for them in any of Looping systems and then status in AAPS. On end there is some info, what is required for a pump to be “Loop capable”.


Loop status: Some of older versions of pumps are loopable, but not the newer models (see down)

Other implementations: OpenAPS, Loop

Java implementations: Partial implementation available Rountrip2, and RileyLinkAAPS

AAPS implementation status: Starting. See Andy’s AndroidAPS fork, branch riley_link_medtronic (default branch). At the moment most of work is being done on RileyLinkAAPS to get framework and commands working. There is project (Medtronic) and tickets opened for future development on that repository, development is being done on branch dev_medtronic (which is default branch there). There is also gitter room: RileyLinkAAPS/Lobby. AAPS. 2nd test “release” is out, with about 60% of all functionality. Work is progressing according to plan, end of development estimated to end of November.

Hardware requirement for AAPS: RileyLink

Loopable versions: 512-522, 523 (Fw 2.4A or lower), 554 (EU firmware 2.6A or lower, CA firmware 2.7A or lower). Same for 7xx versions. All other devices are not supported, and probably won’t be.

Insulet Omnipod (Homepage)

Loop status: Not supported at the moment, but decoding of the Omnipod protocol is mostly finished- OpenOmni and OmniAPS Slack

Other implementations: Loop (implementation is in the beginning stages; as far as I know, they managed to Init the pod and send the first TBR). See Openomni on github

Java implementations: None.

AAPS implementation status: Work has started on RileyLinkAAPS for Omnipod (dev_omnipod branch), but it is far from working prototype (developer started working on changes needed for RL firmware 2.0). You can follow progress on https://omniaps.slack.com/ channel android-driver. Developer is posting progress there.

Hardware requirement for AAPS: RileyLink with Omnipod firmware (2.x)

Omnipod DASH (Homepage)

Loop status: Currently not supported by any of loop system. Pump is a Loop candidate, but protocol unknown at the moment. Selling of pump will start in January 2019 (they are doing pre-sales now in USA).

Hardware requirement for AAPS: Probably none. It’s BT enabled.

Comments: Omnipod DASH is currently not in the plan. Once we have a java implementation for standard Omnipod, we will work from that implementation. If (omnipod) protocol hasn’t changed, we might have an implementation a few months later, but if the protocol has changed then it might take some time.

Ypsomed Pump (Homepage)

Loop status: Version 1 - 1.5 (2Q/2018) are not Loop candidates. While they do have BT communication, it seems that communication is very limited (uni directional: Pump->App). Maybe this will change in the next versions.

Hardware requirement for AAPS: Probably none. It’s BT enabled.

Cellnovo Pump (Homepage)

Loop status: Currently not supported by any of loop system. Pump is a Loop candidate, but since protocol is unknown at the time, I am not seeing this pump supported very soon.

Hardware requirement for AAPS: Probably none. It’s BT enabled.

Medtrum A6/P6/C6 (Homepage)

Loop status Is a Loop candidate. Company has its own limited half-Loop system running (A6). Controlable via iPhone App. No Android app available at the moment.

Hardware requirement for AAPS: Probably none. It seems to be BT enabled.

Animas Vibe

Loop status: Not loopable. No remote control possibility. Note: Pump is not being sold anymore. Company stopped working in Pump bussiness (J&J).

Animas Ping

Loop status: Currently not supported by any of Loop systems, but it might be a candidate, since it does have some kind of remote possibility. Since its much older pump, it might never get supported anywhere.

Requirements for pump being loopable


  • Pump has to support some kind of remote control. (BT, Radio frequency, etc)
  • Protocol is hacked/documented/etc.

Minimal requirement

  • Set Temporary Basal Rate
  • Get Status
  • Cancel Temporary Basal Rate

For oref1(SMB) or Bolusing:

  • Set Bolus

Good to have

  • Cancel Bolus
  • Get Basal Profile (almost requirement)
  • Set Basal Profile
  • Read History


  • Set Extended Bolus
  • Cancel Extended Bolus

Other pumps support

If you have any other pumps you would like to see status on, please contact me (@andyrozman on gitter). In future release a lot of Pump configurations will be added to be Open loopable (you will be able to select Virtual Pump Type in configuration and your settings will be loaded - Feature request #863).
