Fault detection in glucose control: Is it time to move beyond CGM data?
Journal article, Peer reviewed

People with diabetes mellitus type 1 could benefit from fully automated systems for glucose control. However, faults in any component of the system can severely compromise the safety of the user. An increasing degree of automation also increases the risk that faults remain undiscovered for longer periods - unless automated routines for fault detection are implemented at the same time. The aim of this article is to give a categorized overview of methods for fault detection in glucose control systems. This overview targets at disclosing hidden potentials for improvement and unresolved issues. Methods for fault detection in glucose control systems have been reviewed and classified with respect to categories such as the type of method and the exploited data basis. Both journal and conference papers were taken into account. Compared to the number of studies on glucose control algorithms, only a few articles have been published on fault detection. Surprisingly few of them consider system information beyond the standard diabetes care data.
