DHT11 blocks when using read functions

Hello,
I have been using freertos for a project and I’ve done 3 tasks which all worked perfectly except for one which reads the temperature and humidity of dht11. When I call dht.readTemperature() or dht.readHumidity() it block indefinetely. I suspect it is connected to the fact that the library uses the delay() function. Any way I can solve this without remaking the dht11 library?

Code that blocks:

void readSensor( void *pvParameters )
{
(void) pvParameters;

for(;:wink:
{
Serial.println(“Task 1”);

t= dht.readTemperature();
h = dht.readHumidity();
hic = dht.computeHeatIndex(t, h, false);

vTaskDelay(1000 / portTICK_PERIOD_MS);

}

}

If it blocks when you call dht.readTemperature() then presumable the issue is inside that function, and you don’t show the code for that.

Yes that was the case! I already got it to work by using a different library that didn’t block the execution. Thank you!

May know which library fixed this issue?
I’m facing the same issue with the Adafruit DHT library?
