The Vehicle Speed sensor or VSS measures transmission/transaxle output or wheel speed. Yes it dictates the speedometer after signal goes though the computer

An ABS sensor is attached to the hub of a drive tire and is responsible for monitoring multiple vehicle functions such as traction control, anti-lock braking systems, and also communicates with computer to verify the vehicle's speed.
