<p>A description is given of the design, implementation, and experimental evaluation of a multiprocessor scheduler used with robotics applications and other real-time programs. The scheduler makes decisions concerning both the assignment of processes and the scheduling of these processes on each processor such that a near-optimal numer of processor deadlines is satisfied. It assumes that process execution times, deadlines, and earliest possible start times are known.</p>
