From what I understand the Smartbeam technology uses the forward facing camera behind the rear view mirror. When the road ahead is dark and there are no oncoming cars then the lights automatically switch to the high beams. When the camera sees an oncoming vehicle then the lights will automatically gradually switch back to the low beams. This ideal if you frequently drive on desolate dark roads.
Because the Smartbeam uses the forward facing camera you have to make sure the line of sight is unobustructed (e.g. iPass). At least this is what I understand from my 2008 XK.
