A re-modularized sensing device is disclosed, which is especially for a sensing system having a power unit, a sensing unit, a processing unit, and a transceiver unit is disclosed. The power unit provides electricity for the modularized sensing device. The sensing unit derives at least one environmental data. The processing unit has a sensing device processing application program for calculating the environmental data and generating a first outcome. The transceiver unit transfers the first outcome and a first signal to the host. And one or more modules are formed by the sensing unit, the processing unit, and the power unit, and each module is individually removable and replaceable. And an initialization method of the sensing system using the re-modularized sensing device is also disclosed.

A gap compensation mechanism capable of self adaptive posture adjustment is disclosed, which comprises a base seat, having at least a fixation portion disposed thereon, the fixation portion having a flow path area disposed peripheral thereto; at least an adjustment unit, sleeved onto an outer rim of the fixation portion; and a filler, being filled within the flow path area. As such, a workpiece to be fixed may be disposed on a face of an adjustment unit. Further, the adjustment unit provides at least three freedoms for the altitude and two axial inclinations for self adaptively compensating a gap with any geometrical shapes and thus further adjusting the posture of the combined workpiece. After all the adjustments, a filler is filled to reinforce the structure and finally a fixation unit is employed for locking and fixing.
