viscocity sensor working principle
to find the level of grease

Grease level and viscosity are two different things.
Do you have an example of, or a part number for the viscosity sensor?

Do you mean oil emulsified into a metallic soap base (lithium, calcium, sodium ..) as in the traditional definition of machinery grease, or a freely-flowing fluid lubricating oil? I can think of more ways to determine fluid lubricant level and viscosity than for semi-solid grease. Many of these possibilities are influenced by other design aspects including gearbox dimensions and size, and gear/shaft placement; these details are important to winnow out 'impossible possibilities'.
