This chapter consists of four sections. Each section introduces a major project related with ubiquitous computing technology which has been conducted by Korean government. In the second section, we introduce UCN (Ubiquitous Computing Network) project in which service convergence solutions have been developed to design and manage human-centered composite services. In the third section, we introduce a project on intelligent service robots in ubiquitous environment. The fourth describes several projects related with ubiquitous health. Finally, we introduce a projectwhich focuses on the architecture of USN (Ubiquitous Sensor Network) technology for nation-wide monitoring.
