Stress may be defined as the reaction of the body to regulate itself to changes within the environment through mental, physical, or emotional responses. Recurrent episodes of acute stress can disturb the physical and mental stability of a person. This subsequently can have a negative effect on work performance and in the long term can increase the risk of physiological disorders like hypertension and psychological illness such as anxiety disorder. Psychological stress is a growing concern for the worldwide population across all age groups. A reliable, cost-efficient, acute stress detection system could enable its users to better monitor and manage their stress to mitigate its long-term negative effects. In this article, we will review and discuss the literature that has used machine learning based approaches for stress detection. We will also review the existing solutions in the literature that have leveraged the concept of edge computing in providing a potential solution in real-time monitoring of stress.
