With the growth of the Internet of Things (IoT), sensorbased systems deal with heterogeneous sources, which produce heterogeneous observations of disparate quality. Since network QoS is rarely sufficient to expertise Quality of Observation (QoO), managing such diversity at the application level is a very complex task and requires high levels of experience from application developers. Given this statement, this paper proposes a generic framework for QoO-based autonomic adaptation within

Then, the framework is instantiated and practical considerations when implementing an autonomous sensor-based system are given. We illustrate this instantiation with concrete examples of sensor middlewares and IoT platforms.
