This paper describes the main characteristics of a "social interactive" robot for which social human-robot interaction is important. The main goal of this work is the development of a robotic assistant (called SIRA) for elderly which serves several primary functions such us telepresence, tele-medicine, intelligent reminding, safeguarding, mobility assistance and social interaction. We focus our attention in to equip an intelligent robot assistant with a robust user-machine interface, which enable this robot to communicate, interact, and collaborate with human users in a natural and intuitive way. The social interaction module developed is commented and finally, an application of the social interaction is explained
