I am trying to configure a network for character recognition of sequential data like license plates. Now I would like to use the architecture which is noted in Table 3 in Deep Automatic Licence Plate Recognition system (link: http://www.ee.iisc.ac.in/people/faculty/soma.biswas/Papers/jain_icgvip2016_alpr.pdf).

The architecture the authors presented is this one:

CNN

The first layers are very common, but where I was stumbling was the top (the part in the red frame) of the architecture. They mention 11 parallel layers and I am really unsure how to get this in Python. I coded this architecture but it does not seem to be right to me.

model = Sequential()
model.add(Conv2D(64, kernel_size=(5, 5), input_shape = (32, 96, 3), activation = "relu"))
model.add(MaxPooling2D(pool_size=(2, 2)))
model.add(Dropout(0.25))
model.add(Conv2D(128, kernel_size=(3, 3), activation = "relu"))
model.add(MaxPooling2D(pool_size=(2, 2)))
model.add(Dropout(0.25))
model.add(Conv2D(256, kernel_size=(3, 3), activation = "relu"))
model.add(MaxPooling2D(pool_size=(2, 2)))
model.add(Dropout(0.25))
model.add(Flatten())
model.add(Dense(1024, activation = "relu"))
model.add(Dense(11*37, activation="Softmax"))
model.add(keras.layers.Reshape((11, 37)))

Could someone help? How do I have to code the top to get an equal architecture like the authors?
