The article describes some of the aspects of how the optosensors and laser scanners can be used in the field of security of protected areas and safety fields. The article presents some of the applied possibilities of measuring on spherical area using transmission formulas for gaining data and actual setting of active elements of the optosensors and laser scanners for the environment in a 3D application mechatronic system.
