Hi guys, I am unable to use the following launch file without getting "Invalid roslaunch XML syntax". Any suggestions? (I'm a novice) Thanks in advance.

<launch>
  <!-- Visualization and SLAM nodes use same data, so just subscribe once and relay messages -->
  <node name="odom_relay" type="relay" pkg="topic_tools" args="/base_controller/odom /base_controller/odom_relay" />

Please add your version of ROS, what OS you're running, what version, how you installed ROS, etc.

There are many tools out there to validate XML. I've used the xmllint commandline tool to some success. Assuming your launchfile is foobar.launch, it produces this output:

$ xmllint foobar.launch
foobar.launch:28: parser error : AttValue: " or ' expected
      <param name="RGBD/PoseScanMatching" type="string" value=“true”/>
                                                              ^
foobar.launch:28: parser error : attributes construct error
      <param name="RGBD/PoseScanMatching" type="string" value=“true”/>
                                                              ^
foobar.launch:28: parser error : Couldn't find end of Start Tag param line 28
      <param name="RGBD/PoseScanMatching" type="string" value=“true”/>
                                                              ^
foobar.launch:51: parser error : Opening and ending tag mismatch: group line 11 and launch
     </launch>
     ^
foobar.launch:52: parser error : Premature end of data in tag launch line 1
^

Based on that, it looks like you have some weird characters instead of double quotes (") around your value attributes, and you appear to be missing the end tag of your group (<group ns="rtabmap">) which would be </group>.
