This paper focuses on Artificial Bee Colony (ABC) algorithm which can utilize global information in the static environment and extends it to ABC algorithm based on local information sharing (ABC-lis) in dynamic environment. In detail, ABC-lis algorithm shares only local information of solutions unlike the conventional ABC algorithm. To investigates the search ability and adaptability of ABC-lis algorithm to environmental change, we compare it with the conventional two ABC algorithms by applying them to a multimodal problem with dynamic environmental change. The experimental results have revealed that the proposed ABC-lis algorithm can maintain the search performance in the multimodal problem with the dynamic environmental change, meaning that ABC-lis algorithm shows its search ability and adaptability to environmental change.
