A robot coexisting with humans must not only be able to perform physical tasks, but must also be able to interact with humans in a socially appropriate manner. In this paper, we describe an extension of prior work on planning for task-based social interaction using a robot that must interact with multiple human agents in a simple bartending domain. We describe how the initial state representation developed for this robot has been extended to handle the full range of uncertainty resulting from the input sensors, and outline how the planner will use the resulting uncertainty in the state during plan generation.
