Closed loop systems are a true blessing and definitely here to stay. A near perfect basal rate is key to reduce the manual interventions within these systems (like AndroidAPS, Loop for iOS or OpenAPS).
Searching for a good physical basal test, my T1D girlfriend and I came up with many questions. For example, how late to start, when is a test reliable, which adjustments to make, frequency of testing etc.
As a non-T1D IT professional, and boyfriend of T1D girlfriend, it caused me to facilitate physical basal rate testing by using our Nightscout data and automating as far as possible. Also a page with basal-testing-tips is available.

All the best,
Peter (and girlfriend)
