The key reason for checking these systems is to make sure that the car is operating at maximum efficiency with the least possible emissions. Given that emission control and fuel economy have become more important, your car's electronic system needs to continually adjust and tweak several parameters based on the existing driving conditions, including vehicle load, air or fuel mix and temperature to name just a few.
