With greater precision, yes. Check out the attachInterrupt link i posted above. In short, interrupts let the software immediately stop what it's doing, deal with the interrupt routine and then return to what it was working on. In this case, basicVssInterrupt figures out the time between VSS pulses (vehicle speed) and increments the VSS pulse count (odometer).

It depends which board you're using, but that's the gist of it, yes. Again, check the link.
