With the vigorous development of Chinese high-speed railway and the rapid expansion of the scale, the research on key technologies and performance of high-speed trains has become rich and in-depth. However, the safety of high-speed trains is always the focus of high-speed rail research, construction, and operation. The vibration and environmental changes of the high-speed train running across the time and space make the service state and the safety state always is in the time-varying state, which challenges the safety early warning and health maintenance of the high-speed train.
