Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

can any one help me by telling me how can i extract speed limit of a road from the osm data,with the roads coordinates and name. so that i can use the extracted data in labview as an offline data which helps me to compare the coordinates with the one i acquire from a gps device and find the road name and its speed limit. Thank you

Go to the OSM wiki and have a look at the tag called "maxspeed".

And if you want to filter the raw OSM data for special tags like maxspeed or others, have a look for osmfilter or overpassAPI ... in the wiki and also on this FAQ site.
