Ant Colony System(ACS) Algorithm is a new metaheuristic for hard combinational optimization problem. It is a population-based approach that uses exploitation of positive feedback as well as greedy search. It was first proposed for tackling the well known Traveling Salesman Problem(TSP). In this paper, we introduce a new version of the ACS based on Dynamic weighted updating method and Dynamic ant number decision method using curve fitting algorithm. Implementation to solve TSP and the performance results under various conditions are conducted, and the comparison between the original ACS and the proposed method is shown. It turns out that our proposed method can compete with the original ACS in terms of solution quality and computation speed to these problems.
