Stress causes many physiological changes in the body and has significant effects on physiology. Various types of acute stress include social, competition, emotional and mental stress. Several studies and experiments have been conducted to investigate stress detection and measurement with physiological signals. We designed social and competition stress experiments to test our algorithms to discriminate between stress and non-stress states with physiological signals from an Empatica wristband. The algorithms were successful in detecting the presence of stress with approximately 87% accuracy.
