Do we have a classification of roads depending on the speed, importance and connectivity of the road in OSM ?

I am looking for somthing which is provided by Nokia Here . Please refer the link below


Any help would be highly appreciated

Depending on the country that corresponds more or less to the classification in primary, secondary, tertiary, unclassified and residential. See this wiki page for the road classification per country. Of course you could combine this with the maximum speed (when it is mapped) to make your own classification.

Here doesn't really say how they combine the actual road attributes to reach this "functional class" value. Having a tidy numerical value is nice, but don't take it as gospel. There are many many ways to gauge how important a road is, and Here's definition of "important" will likely differ from yours.
