Cyborg is a cybernetic organism which has both organic and bio-mechatronic parts due to which it has enhanced abilities compared to human being and other organisms. The living components are what separate a cyborg from a robot. Cyborg can be based on human, mammals, rodents, and insects or any kind of organisms.
There are a lot of challenges in building and operating a cyborg as it demands multidisciplinary expertise and calls for higher levels of precision engineering and applications of variety of technologies. Application of cyborgs are wide ranging from medical, military to societal applications such as search and rescue, operation in enclosed spaces such as caves and tunnels and for detecting hazard materials and humans under rubble.
