Human-robot social interaction plays an important role in spreading the use of the robot in human daily life. Through effective social interaction, robots will be able to perform many tasks in the human society. These tasks may include, but not limited to, handling various house duties, providing medical care for elderly people, assisting people with motor or cognitive disabilities, educational entertainment (edutainment), personal assistance, giving directions at information points in public places, etc. These applications need to develop social robots that are able to behave with humans as partners if not peers. This paper presents Maggie, a robotic platform developed at RoboticsLab for research on human-robot social interaction. The different developed interaction modules are also described
