What is Barometric Pressure Sensor?

The Barometric Pressure Sensor is a device that senses barometric pressure and sends an electrical signal to the CPU for optimum engine control. Barometric pressure changes with the weather and with altitude. Since it affects the density of the air entering the engine and ultimately the air/fuel ratio, some computerized emissions control systems use a barometric pressure sensor so that the spark advance and EGR flow can be regulated to control emissions more precisely.
The Barometric sensor Also known as Atmospheric pressure sensor.
"The atmospheric pressure sensor, informs the control module of the current atmospheric pressure. Atmospheric pressure is used to calculate smoke limitation. The greater the car's altitude, the less oxygen there is in the air. The fuel supply must therefore be reduced. Atmospheric pressure also controls the boost pressure, which must be reduced at high altitudes to prevent the turbocharger from over revving.
