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

Dear sir/madam,

I am working on a research project and we would like to create a video to show the trajectory changes of vehicles at one intersection. May I know if we can use OSM to plot real-time points based on the latlon info of each vehicle and generate a video automatically (by using Python if possible)? The data we have include latitude, longitude, and time sequence info.

Thanks for your time and help! Looking forward to hearing from you!

Best, Yiran

If it is just one intersection, I recommend to just download the appropriate map section (tiles, https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Slippy_map_tilenames) from OSM and work locally on this image file using eg. python. That way you don't have to worry about downloadtimes from the server nor tile usage policies.
