This paper focuses on the time delay estimation of the system described in the form of discrete-time state equation with multiple input delays. To estimate the input delays, a new evolutionary computation called the artificial bee colony (ABC) algorithm is utilized. This algorithm is originally motivated from the social behaviors of honeybee organization, and it has been proven to be a powerful means for solving the optimized problem. Based on the proposed algorithm, the unknown system input delays can be further solved by minimizing a quadratic cost function of the system. Two illustrative examples are provided to verify the potential of the presented method in the time delay estimation. Some simulations containing different initial condition examinations and appearance of noises are further given. Numerical results show that the proposed method can do well in the multiple inputs delay estimation of discrete-time state equations.
