Convergence between cyber and physical spaces is accelerating due to the penetration of various ubiquitous services based on sensors and actuators. Effective sensors such as ultra low-cost wireless sensors, smart phones and pads allow us to couple real objects, people, places, and environment with the corresponding entities in the cyber space. Similarly, soft sensors such as blog, facebook, twitter, foursqure and other applications create new types of sensed data for cyber-physical coupling. for In this paper, we describe sensor enabled cyber-physical coupling for creating ubiquitous services in the SenseCampus project. We first classify cyber-physical coupling and ubiquitous services in the project. Several ubiquitous services, such as SensingCloud, DIY smart object services, Twitthings, Airy Notes, and Mebius Ring, are described. We then address the challenges in cyber-physical coupling for creating advanced ubiquitous services particularly for educational facilities.
