What information are used to calculate best route

Hi everyone

What information are used to find the best route while using /directions endpoint? does it consider live traffic data ? are there any open source projects which supports routing while considering live traffice data ?

Thanks in advance


no, the openrouteservice does not consider live traffic data.
I don’t know of an open source routing engine that considers live traffic data.

The openrouteservice mainly uses information about the road types, surfaces and the mode of transport to calculate routes.

Best regards
