Add below arg line to launch file

<arg name="image"/>

Then Change the node line to the following

<node name="2d_obj_rec" pkg="advanced_vision_pkg" type="2d_obj_rec" args="$(arg image)" output="screen"/>

Can you please clarify the question. If you want to pass more arguments to your node the. You can do it by adding more arg tags like blow

<arg name="image"/>

<arg name="2nd_arg"/>

<node name="2d_obj_rec" pkg="advanced_vision_pkg" type="2d_obj_rec" args="$(arg image) $(2nd_arg)" output="screen"/>

You can do like this for another nodes also
