    School bullying is a serious problem among teenagers. With the development of sensor technology and pattern recognition algorithms, several approaches for detecting school bullying have been developed, namely speech emotion recognition, mental stress recog- nition, and activity recognition. This paper reviews some related work and makes some comparisons among these three aspects. The paper analyzes commonly used features and classifiers, and describes some examples. The Gaussian Mixture Model and the Double Threshold classifiers provided high accuracies in many experiments. By using a combined architecture of classifiers, the results could be further improved. According to the results of the experiments, the six basic emotions, high mental stress and irregular movements can be recognized with high accuracies. So the three types of pattern recognition can be used for school bullying detection effectively. And these techniques can be used on consumer devices such as smartphones to protect teenagers.
