Post 3rd party drivers and multitasking.
Hello,

In my robot i’ve plenty of sensors with mux and i want to pool them as fast as possible because some of these sensors are used for motor control (Gyro, IRDist …). I have in my idea to have on task per port in order to parallelize sensors communication. But I don’t know if 3rd party drivers is compatible with multitasking (problem with use of common buffer for exemple). For example, can I use the function MSDISTreadDist() in two different task?

No, you cannot. You're better off making a single task that is in charge of polling the sensors and making those values available as global variables to the other tasks.
