comment Is OpenStreetMap data compatible with Google Map tiles layer?
I think there should be also no problem license-wise but the other way around (using Google Directions on OSM) is not allowed from Google.

comment Replicate routing behavior
@emerak ah, okay. Then this makes sense to use pgrouting ... but can't help you with pgrouting (see my profile ;)).

comment Replicate routing behavior
pgRouting is rather suited for GIS analysis not really suited for live requests. Have a look into other solutions e.g. based on OSM: wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Routing

comment Navigating a road network and avoiding u-turns
Sorry, this wasn't that clear. The one or two directional edged based approach (no or 2x slowdown) should be sufficient IMO. Because if there are two separate edges for the road you can avoid searching backwards which is very expensive and gives you not that much more i.e. you do not need EDGE_BASED_2DIR_UTURN

comment Is OpenStreetMap suitable for me?
+ 1. It is important to note that "share" can mean you release the original data or the created data as odbl. At the end I would recommend you to release any modifications to OSM and e.g. differentiate through your potentially closed source app

comment Adding Special Nodes to OSM Data for pgRouting
The data is already tagged as area I think. And I wouldn't introduce new nodes there, instead create this smoothing after you found the path. See this issue for some general ideas about that topic github.com/graphhopper/graphhopper/issues/82

comment Using custom data in OSRM
Even if it is easy with OSRM (I do not know) merging two topologies is a mess. When do you decide (automated) if it is a new or different road or just a changed existing one or a longer one etc? Where to append and merge nodes in the other network? So, as nickves, I suggest to contribute your road data back to OSM and have a much simpler procedure. If that is "not possible" the chances are still high that the OSM share alike license would even force you to release it or the created result.

comment ArcGIS historical traffic data with Impedance attribute of miles
Ok, understood and should be possible indeed. And sorry can't help you here as I'm no arcgis user, but as you are a software engineer you can have a look at the open source routing engine GraphHopper (note: I'm the author)

comment Convert moving duration into routes
Do you want something like a round tour implemented limited by a specific maximum time? There is a heuristical algorithm implemented in GraphHopper where you can have a look: github.com/graphhopper/graphhopper/pull/420 it tries to produce the maximum path forward and backward without visiting the same roads again

comment ArcGIS historical traffic data with Impedance attribute of miles
How should the router recognize traffic delay if you want just the shortest path? Or do you want the distance for the fastest path?
